Womens Suffrage and the American Presidency "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

71CGt9MpsFL._SL1500_On the 28th of August 1917, ten Suffragists were arrested for picketing in front of the White House in Washington, D.C. This marked one of the most dramatic points in the American suffragist campaigns. Earlier that year, in January, an ever growing number of women started parading in front of the iconic building and expressing their support for womens suffrage womens right to vote. Their campaigns, called the Silent Sentinels, were organized by Alice Paul and the National Womans Party and were intended as a means of protest against Woodrow Wilsons presidency. Their vigil started in January 1917 and lasted until June 1919, when the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution passed both the House of Representatives and Senate. During those two and a half years, more than a thousand different women picketed every day and night, except Sunday, and many were arrested during the vigil. Their acts were known to become rather radical at times:

On the afternoon of February 9, 1919, the eve of the last senatorial vote on suffrage in the Sixty-Fifth Congress, Paul staged this most controversial of rhetorical acts. A c...

Obvious Differences Between Mohammad and Jesus "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Isle of Wight town centre in chaos after passive-aggressive rioting "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

An uneasy peace was hanging over the centre of Cowes, Isle of Wight, this morning after a series of riots that was initially sparked by passive-aggressive indirect communication between a man who needed the toilet and a group of born again Christians. This ultimately led to a bitter war of evasion involving glib generalisations from multiple parties, police have said.

We believe it all started when an unknown man approached the Christians, who were preaching to a crowd of one outside the Edinburgh Woollen Mill, said Inspector Raymond Crocker. He said Excuse me please, I wonder if you can help me, the minster said Of course, the man asked where the nearest public toilets were and another of the congregation stepped forward with a copy of the Bible, saying All the answers are in here.

According to witnesses, the increasingly desperate man muttered Cant you just answer a simple question for fucks sake?, another Christian asked him if he really had to swear, he said Yes I fucking do, actually, reached in his pocket for a business card and threw it on the floor, saying Here, you want the answers? Theyre all in that. The Christians all tutted at him, aghast at the thought of having to look at a jargon-filled website to find the answer to a simple question.

At this point, another man who worked for an internet provider intervened to try and help, only to be asked tersely what it had to do with him and he responded in the only way he knew, by telling both sides to speak to the call centre, continued Inspector Crocker. Then an off duty traffic officer walked by and closed the Christians stall and left a card with the number to call if wanted to appeal. Finally a man from Southern Rail knocked the table over and told them they could fill out a form online if they wanted a refund.

As the disaster escalated, embarrassed people tried to leave the scene, only to be intercepted by researchers who wanted to know how they rated their customer experience, in a survey which they promised would only take three minutes, but actually dragged on until late in the evening, by which time the police had completed an impact assessment form. AS of this morning, they were still debating whether or not to intervene if thats all the same with YOU.

FEMA Plans to be In Texas for YEARS Because of Harvey "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"


The head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency said his agency is already gearing up for a years-long effort to help Texas recover from the damage wrought by Hurricane Harvey.

FEMA is going to be there for years, administrator Brock Long said Sunday on CNNs State of the Union.

He added, This disaster is going to be a landmark event.

Hurricane Harvey, now a tropical storm, hit southeastern Texas this weekend, and forecasters said it would continue to make its way inland over the course of the next several days.

FEMA is focused on the immediate response to the storm, but is also pushing forward teams focused on recovery housing and flood insurance program policy.

Were setting up and gearing up for the next couple years, Long said.

Vaccine Requirement for Liver Transplant Nearly Cost Life of 11 Year Old Boy "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Kendetrick hospital

Kendetrick

by Brittany Dock
Special to Health Impact News

Politics have no place in hospitals.

My son, who is 11 years old, suffered tremendously because of a mandatory vaccine policy at his transplant hospital.

Kendetrick was diagnosed with newly onset liver disease out of nowhere on October 18, 2016.

From that day forward, his life went out of control.

Several procedures and tests were done over the next few months. Experimenting with medications, there seemed to be no light at the end of the tunnel.

He was getting worse and worse. He stopped eating, stopped playing, stopped living.

Kendetrick with mom in the hospital

Kendetrick with mom in the hospital

He was evaluated for a liver transplant on January 12 and 13, 2017.

I was told they would not transplant my son or even list him on UNOS unless I agreed to get him fully up-to-date on his vaccines.

I stopped when he was a baby, with the support of his doctor, after a failed RSV vaccine and the fact that he was always sick. I did my homework. This is a child who has many problems. He has congenital heart disease as well and has never really been healthy.

When speaking with one of the members of the transplant team about the fact that they required him to get vaccinated I asked what would happened if I dont get them for him and she said we will make him comfortable and continue to try things, but he could not get listed on UNOS.

He had been deteriorating for months prior and he was soon evaluated. It was clear he was a candidate for liver transplantation. There was still no clear diagnosis and he went from stage one to two liver disease in a matter of six weeks.

Richmond Fans Stunned To Learn That Football Is Played In September "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Fans of the AFL club Richmond were stunned to learn that upon completion of the final round of the year that their side would continue playing throughout September.

Mate Im stunned you know, I thought we play till the end of August finish 9th then the boys go to Bali and we watch Hawthorn win the premiership, said Richmond fan Barry Bower. But now we go on to play Geelong and then if we keep winning we could even win a flag, I must be dreaming.

Whilst Richmond fans were stunned at their teams success fans of AFL powerhouse Hawthorn were in shock knowing that their side will not be playing in September.

Last year was tough when we didnt make it to the preliminary final let alone win the flag, but now we didnt make the 8. What will I do in September? Next week is jersey day at work, am I still allowed to wear my Hawks jersey? I mean without winning a premiership or being in contention Ill just be walking around wearing a brown and gold jumper.

The AFL has announced that they will offer counselling for disbelieving Hawthorn fans and encouraged fans of other non-successful clubs...

Brad Fittler has declared he is the man to take the NSW Blues in a more serious direction next year, claiming the boys havent been taking the contest seriously enough.

Fittler made the comments whilst riding a donkey and dressed in a giant sumo suit on the weekend.

The boys just dont get how important Origin is and why they need cut out the silly shit, Fittler told us.

Freddy paused to pull a condom over his head and blow it up with his nose before continuing.

This is the most serious sporting challenge in the world and the Blues need to give it more respect.

If Fittler is appointed to the role, he says he will probably quit his other professional commitments to focus on the position.

If they choose me, Ill probably stop doing me rodeo clown shit in Tamworth every week, but well see, a cheeky Fittler said.

Every now and then a story is shared with me that involves not only one of my favorite subjects, but the subject that this website is (obliquely) named for: the Great Pyramid. Most readers here know that I am a "pyramidiot", as the lamestream quackademy likes to call us folks who think there's much more going on with that structure than meets the myopic quackademic eye. Whatever that structure really is, one thing it is not is "ordinary." Even "respected" archaeologists like Sir Flinders Petrie, the so-called "founder of modern Egyptology" were honest enough to make statements that the modern quackademy would rather forget they made, such as his observation that the "sarcophagus" in the "King's chamber" in the Great Pyramid looked to his late 19th century-early-2oth-century eyes as if it had been drilled out.

Rep Gomer VA Dems Colluded to Create Violence, 1768 "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

- Water Smacker - Makes your water less acidic by ionization. https://www.watersmacker.com Good afternoon, Im still reporting on: Rep Gomer VA Dems Colluded to Create Violence, 1768 Synopsis: According to Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), the Dept. of Justice should mount a formal investigation into Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe and Charlottesville Mayor Michael Signer for deliberately creating the conditions that led to violence in Charlottesville, VA on Aug. 12th,, then refusing to let the police stop it. Gohmert also called for a full investigation into the role of Jason Kessler, the white supremacist organizer of Unite the Right rally for his ties to both the Obama administration the Hillary Clinton campaign and Occupy Wall Street group. He has also written for CNN. In Nov. 2016 the month President Trump won his upset victory over Hillary Clinton, Kessler suddenly shifted from far left to announcing himself to be the leader of a new far right group, Unite the Right. UTR was the right-wing group who got the permit from Charlottesville to stage a right-wing rally. Kessler is now suspected of being a plant who purposely helped set up the violent clash to damage the reputation of President Trump, and the political right in general. According to Gohmert: You dont just go all of a sudden from having multiracial roommates to all of a sudden being a white supremacist that wants to join the Republican party.

Finally, the Eclipse Shadow Caught, 1766 b "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

- Life Change Tea: Rid Your Body From Toxins! https://www.GetTheTea.com Good afternoon, Im still reporting on: Finally, the Eclipse Shadow Caught, 1766 b Synopsis: My first total eclipse of the sun was on March 7, 1970. The moons shadow barely skimmed the east coast of the United States. I drove down to Elizabeth City, NC to view it. The 1970 eclipse brought 3 mins 28 sec., of totality a full 60 seconds more than last Mondays eclipse. That made the 1970 eclipse a much darker shadow then the recent one. Why? Because the suns diameter is exactly 400 times that of the moons. Therefore, the closer the moon is to the earth, the bigger its shadow. Thats why you heard people say, I thought it would be darker than it was. Well, the good news is that the next total solar eclipse to hit the US will be on April 8, 2024 6-and-one-half years from now. Instead of 2 mins 28 seconds of totality, it will feature 4 mins 28 sec. of totality. That will be a really dark eclipse. For this last eclipse, the main thing I wanted to try to capture was the speed at which the moons shadow moves. For the 1970 eclipse, I was up high enough to see it coming across the flatlands. For this eclipse, thats why I tried to get up on a mountain to get that far view. So when we had to abandon that location due to a massive cloud, I was really disappointed. What I didnt realize was that I accidentally captured it with my GoPro camera and didnt realize it until last night. So this sequence, is sped up 4 times. It runs from 2 minutes before totality, until 1 minute after. Ive sped it up 4 times, so the entire sequence only lasts 82 seconds. Now, look at the distant clouds low on the horizon. Notice that in about 5 seconds from here they suddenly turn from white to dark. Thats the shadow racing our way at 1400 miles per hour. In a few more seconds it hits the low cloud deck directly overhead. In the first seconds of totality, you can see the suns corona peeking through a hole in the clouds. 35 seconds later, you see the shadow retreating across the cloud deck and just before it hits, you see the suns corona peeking through a final hole in the clouds.

C is for Chickasaw by Wiley Barnes (Chickasaw) and Aaron Long (Choctaw), published in 2014 by White Dog Press (Chickasaw Press), is definitely an alphabet book that every library in the country should get!

Here's the cover:



And here's the description:
C is for Chickasaw walks children through the letters of the alphabet, sharing elements of Chickasaw history, language, and culture along the way. Writing with multiple age groups in mind, Wiley Barnes has skillfully crafted rhyming verse that will capture and engage a younger child s imagination, while also including in-depth explanations of each object or concept that will resonate with older children. The colorful illustrations by Aaron Long reflect elements of Southeastern Native American art and serve to familiarize children with aspects of this distinctive artistic style. A supplementary section with questions and activities provides a springboard for further discussion and learning.

The figures on the cover are on the C page, but so are these (below) ... which just makes me want to jump up off my couch and do a fist pump! I love books that have illustrations that place Native people in the present day! This one is perfect because the three people are clearly in modern dress, giving readers a strong corrective to the all-too-frequent Native peoples in the past imagery that most books have in them.

WV-DEP May Have Messed Over 401 Certification for MVP "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Support: Appalachian Mountain Advocates

WV DEP ignored water quality in MVP permit, court filing argues

From an Article by Ken Ward, Jr., Charleston Gazette, August 16, 2017

WV Department of Environmental Protection Secretary Austin Caperton and his staff ignored serious threats to water quality when they approved a West Virginia permit for the Mountain Valley Pipeline, lawyers for environmental groups and citizen organizations say in a new legal brief filed this week.

WV-DEP officials approved a water quality certification for the MVP project despite not having fully reviewed its potential to degrade streams, failing to consider the water pollution effects from construction in areas upland from streams and not responding to an avalanche of public comments questioning the pipeline, the groups say.

Notwithstanding the clear and present threat to water quality from construction of the pipeline in the steep mountains of West Virginia, [the] WVDEP failed to adequately consider that threat, wrote Derek Teaney, one of the Appalachian Mountain Advocates lawyers representing the Sierra Club, the West Virginia Rivers Coalition and other groups.

Tuesday evening, citizen group lawyers filed an 82-page brief arguing to outline their legal challenge of a Clean Water Act certification that Caperton issued to approve the MVP, a natural gas pipeline proposed to run more than 300 miles from the Marcellus Shale fields of Wetzel County, West Virginia, to Pittsylvania County, Virginia.

In West Virginia, the pipeline corridor is nearly 200 miles long and would require nearly 150 miles of access roads. Construction would require 631 stream crossings and 424 wetlands crossings. Construction involves a 125-foot-wide right of way. Operation requires a permanent 50-foot right of way. The pipeline would disturb about 4,189 acres of soils that are classified as having the potential for severe water erosion, the lawyers note. More than 150 miles of the pipelines route through West Virginia is considered to have a high incidence of and high susceptibility to landslides.

Caperton, a former coal executive and energy consultant, approved the pipeline permit, issuing a news release that pointed reporters to the developers website for information about the potential economic be...

Column: Using music for journey work and meditation "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

When Im trying to get in the mood to spend time at my altar, there are so many considerations and preparations that I have to make. In my practice I work with oils, waters, stones, herbs, incense, colored candles, fabrics, statuary, dolls (you dont?), and ritual tools.

Thankfully over the years Ive filtered out what I like and what works, so I dont need to recreate the wheel when I want to do a sabbat ritual or a major working that requires an overhaul of my altar elements.

[Photo Credit: Verbena Stevens / Flickr]

While scent and color and all of the other aesthetics can be helpful, how often are you bringing music into your practice? Its something we see all of the time in other practices, so why not ours?

Beyond playing your own music in meditation, trance, or deep journey working, playing others can deeply enhance your work and get you to the place you need to be. I know there are some ritualists who have a hard time using electronics in sacred space, but experimenting with techniques that arent always done in circle, like meditation, may be a good way to try it out.

Following are a collection of go-tos for me, new and old. A caution and a recommendation before we proceed: altered consciousness is what were aiming for here, so if youre someone who doesnt react well to that, please dont use this in your practice. Also, you might not want to drive a car or do anything that requires a lot of your attention while listening to these tracks, they very easily pull you in.

Before you sit down and cast a circle or however you get your ritual on, listen to these tracks ahead of time. You dont want to discover that the skittering noise that you hear at 3:42 in the track brings to mind the girl from The Ring, scrambling across your ceilings and walls. Or maybe you do want that experience. My point is to be prepared.

First up is Mark Seelig and Sam Rosenthals new release Journey to Aktehi. The successfully funded project on Kickstarter contains just over 45 minutes of music. Sam Rosenthal is the founding member of Black Tape for a Blue Girl and is known for his Projeckt Records label. Seelig is known for his shamanic work and his music using the north Indian a bamboo flute, called the bansuri, as well as chants. This album will feel familiar to folks who have worked with more New Age music....

Meet the Agarthans: Parts 1-3 "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Suzi is away at an Agarthan Symposium in New York City. While shes taking it in, why dont we meet the Agarthans?

After Disclosure, Sheldan Nidles galactic and ascended sources tell us, we are suddenly to learn about Agartha and why you first came here some 900,000 years ago. Lost memories are to be recovered and explained.

Your world is actually two, Sheldans sources explain.

One is Inner Earth and the home of your Agarthan cousins. They are the last remnant of the colonists that seeded Gaia some 900,000 years ago. At first, they occupied the continent that most of you call Lemuria.

Eventually, they moved a part of their colony to inner Earth. It is this latter group that became the last vestige of what Lemuria was about. The Atlanteans attacked and claimed the surface realm for themselves. This eventually led to a simmering conflict, which boiled over some 13 millennia ago.

SaLuSa gives us more details:

You will hear more about those souls that reside in the Inner Earth, that you know as the Agarthans. Before the demise of Lemuria they were the ones that left their land, and continued their evolution by moving to the Inner Earth. They are at a stage where they have moved into a higher level of consciousness, and will be part of open contact when it is safe to do so. They have much...

Roundup linked to over a dozen Health Issues "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Independent research finds Roundup linked to over a dozen major health issues



(NaturalHealth365) In March of 2015, the World Health Organization officially classified glyphosate, a primary ingredient of the weed-killer Roundup, as a probable carcinogen. Since then, over 1,200 people with non-Hodgkins lymphoma have filed suit against Monsanto, the herbicides manufacturer, for failing to warn of the cancer risks with many more lawsuits likely to emerge.
As Monsanto, a.k.a. the worlds most hated corporation, continues to insist that glyphosate is safe, two independent researchers are revealing the explosive facts: the agrochemical giant has long known the truth about glyphosates toxicity and deliberately concealed it.
Massive cover-up: The deadly truth about Roundup has been hidden for nearly 40 years
According to the Organic Consumers Association, a non-profit environmental group, independent researcher Dr. Anthony Samsel gained access in 2015 to an enormous cache of scientific documents that clearly show that Monsanto conducted its own studies on glyphosates toxicity and health risks then concealed the research from independent and public review.
For close to 40 years, in fact, the corporation has been knowingly ignoring the cause and effect relationships behind the onset of multiple cancers a practice that Samsel calls radical scientific denialism....

Nazis, Antarctica, and Bigfoot "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"


(Brent SwancerNazis. Has there ever been a greater villain or evil force out there? Throughout history they have not only served to be the perpetrators of horrific acts, but also the target of numerous, countless conspiracy theories and strange tales. They really manage to fit whatever the creepy story calls for, and there are many such stories. Among the many are the rumors that the Nazis had a secretive, covert base in the cold depths of the continent of Antarctica, a tale which in itself has spread out to cover many facets of the weird. Yet there is one account in particular that I feel is particularly surreal and odd. It is a harrowing and horrific tale of soldiers out in the frigid elements, fighting not only the landscape itself, but unknown entities dwelling within it. In short, it is the perfect story of Nazi bizarreness.

Green Manure "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

If you have a bit of space in your garden, growing green manures or cover crops is a great way to improve soil fertility and add organic matter to your soil. They can also be used as weed suppressants, and assist in the control of pest and diseases. So what are they, and where and when can you use them?

What is green manure?

Green manures or cover crops describe a range of temporary, fast growing leafy plants which are sown from seed generally in autumn or spring, grown through the next few weeks or months (depending on the season), and then, just before they begin to flower and set seed, they are slashed and turned in to the soil, or used as mulch for whatevers to be planted next.

Why is it grown?

You might consider growing a green manure crop in a new garden area to supress weeds, improve drainage, reduce compaction, stabilise the area to limit erosion, and improve the soil before you put in permanent plantings. Green manure crops are often used in vegetable gardens, in beds, or parts of beds which are given a break from vegetable production for a season to improve the soil and set the bed up for the next crop.

Vegetable gardeners might have some space to spare after the summer harvest, and if you have a crop rotation system, you could think of incorporating a green manure crop into the rotation check out our guide to crop rotation incorporating green manure crops here.

When to plant

There are different green manure crops that will thrive in different climates and different seasons.
If you want to plant a cool/cold season crop and you live in
an area with cool/cold winters (Tasmania, Victoria and southern New South Wales, southern South Australia and southern Western Australia), the best sowing time is early autumn. If its been very dry, wait for a bit of autumn rain before sowing. You can also sow cool/cold season crops in these areas in early spring;
a warmer area (northern New South Wales and southern Queensland, warmer parts of South Australia and Western Australia) plant cool/cold season crops a little later in April or May;
in a frost free area, cool/cold season crops can be planted from autumn until the end of winter.

If you want to plant a warm season crop, and you live in a colder area, plant in spring, once theres no risk of frost. In warmer areas, plant in summer whenever you can rely on rainfall, or are able to irrigate. If you live in a tropical area, you can plant warm season crops throughout the yea...

12% of Sanders supporters ultimately voted for Trump, enough to swing the election. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont inspired millions of loyal supporters, some of whom chose not to support Hillary Clinton in the general election in 2016.

Sandy Huffaker/AP

Fully 12 percent of people who voted for Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., in the 2016 Democratic presidential primaries voted for President Trump in the general election. That is according to the data from the Cooperative Congressional Election Study a massive election survey of around 50,000 people. (For perspective, a run-of-the-mill survey measuring Trump's job approval right now has a sample of 800 to 1,500.)

Middle-Aged Marketers Decide to Get the Brand Back Together "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

NEW YORK A group of middle-aged, financially stable marketers put their differences aside late last night and reunited their old garage brand following a trade show, according to multiple elated capitalists.

Following 15 Bud Lights, three glasses of Kendall Jackson chardonnay, four Sauza Gold tequila shots, and three servings of Loaded Potato Skins at a nearby TGI Fridays, the four-piece In Public Group took one look at todays watered-down pharmaceutical market and concluded they just know consumers will be clamoring for [their] brand of dietary supplements.

We skimmed some headlines about that Shkreli brat we knew we had to get a piece. Healthcare is where the moneys at now. Back when we were marketing, nobody even cared. Id like to think we were ahead of our time, said Head of Northeast Marketing Strategies Sarah Wilks. Considering the FDA has no rules against price hikes, the sick and the dying people are a freakin goldmine. This could be really big for us now.

In an age where pharmaceutical companies spend more money on marketing than on research and development, In Public Group are eager to get back at it.

Snopes admitted (grudgingly) that the national debt HAS been reduced by $102 BILLION since POTUS was inaugurated "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Has the National Debt Fallen by $102 Billion Since Donald Trump's Inauguration?Leonard Zhukovsky/Shutterstock.com

A conservative web site accurately describes a remarkable decline in the debt since January 2017, but offers no evidence that the President is responsible for it.

Conclusion
The Truth Division article accurately describes the extent to which the national debt fell between the inauguration of Donald Trump in January 2017, and the end of July. And it rightly describes this fall as surprising, since it ranks among the very largest 131-day declines in the national debt since July 1993 both in absolute and percentage terms. 
Similarly, the decline in both components of the national debt public debt and intragovernmental holdings was highly significant between 20 January and 27 July 2017, both in absolute and percentage terms. 
And as weve shown, the national debt has fallen by an estimated 2.25% since Inauguration Day, even when measured against the size of the overall Unites States economy....

Miners Are Milking Bcashs Difficulty Adjustments (and Why This Is a Problem) "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Miners Are Milking Bcashs Difficulty Adjustments (and Why This Is a Problem)

Bitcoin Cash (Bcash or BCH) has been more profitable to mine than Bitcoin (BTC) on multiple occasions over the past week or two. This is creating a new dynamic within Bitcoins ecosystem one which is not really beneficial for either coin.

In Bitcoin Magazine's previous article on this topic, we explained why Bcash mining should normally not affect Bitcoin too much, aside from the incidental higher fees and slower confirmations. We also explained why this dynamic could, in the meantime, ruin Bcash, as it should freeze that blockchain in its tracks.

We also noted that Bcash has a built-in emergency solution to mitigate the risk, which could get its blockchain moving again. But this solution does assume either that some miners are choosing to act against their own short-term interest at certain times for the benefit of all miners or that miners are coordinating for their mutual benefit, on some level.

Now, several days later, it appears that this is whats happening. Some miners are either acting against their short-term interests for specific periods of time or they are coordinating to trigger the emergency solution.

The good news for Bcash is that this means its blockchain is still in motion for now, at least on most days. But at the same time, the dynamic generated by the emergency solution is benefiting its miners overall, more than anyone else and its even calling into question the long-term viability of Bitcoin Cash itself.

The Emergency Difficulty Adjustment

First, a brief recap of Bitcoin mining and Bcashs built-in emergency solution.

Mining profitability is determined by the value of the block reward (newly mined coins plus transaction fees) and the difficulty to mine a block. If the value of the block rewards are higher and the difficulty is lower, miners make more money.

The difficulty on both Bitcoin and Bcash self-adjusts each time 2016 blocks are mined. If it takes longer than two weeks to mine these 2016 blocks, difficulty adjusts downward so it becomes easier to mine. If it takes less than two weeks, the difficulty adjusts upward so it becomes harder.

Bcash really needs its difficulty to be low enough to match the value of its block rewards in relation to Bitcoin. So, if Bcash's block reward is worth 15 percent of Bitcoins block reward, Bcashs difficulty must also be 15 p...

I Turned Him Into A Mexican Tonight : Hypersensitive Snowflake Media Triggered By Conor McGregor Compliment Following Loss To Mayweather "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

After a surprisingly brutal showdown in Las Vegas last night between Mixed Martial Arts fighter Conor McGregor and undefeated boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, McGregor was quoted as saying that he turned Floyd Mayweather into a Mexican.

As you might have expected, the social justice crowd immediately pounced into action across the internet.

Words like racism, bigot and stereotype started flying.

But for those that know anything about boxing, the word compliment is more appropriate.

The Mexican style of boxing is one that is often overly aggressive and involves a lot of punches being thrown. Mayweather, though undefeated with a record of 50-0, has long been criticized for his defensive style and low punch volume during fights.

What McGregor actually meant, though completely misconstrued by those looking for some sort of racism to grasp onto, is that the usually reserved Mayweather was forced to fight more aggressively because the Irishmen just kept coming at him.

Eating Eggs Can Expose You to Harmful Insecticides and Other Agrochemicals "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

By Michael Parkes

In relation to your wellness, the chicken does come before the egg. Whatever is fed to chickens will also end up in your eggs. Its normal for the nutrients absorbed by the mother through her diet of chemicals and latent ground GMO soy beans and corn to be passed on. Often kept in cages throughout their wholes lives, the chickens dream of running free on the ranges outside, as they munch away on the pellets on the menu everyday.

Now the EU poultry industry is in a food scandal of toxic eggs being sent from across the world by the Belgian and Dutch food systems. Recently the United Kingdom was notified about eggs which were contaminated with insecticide as part of a European warning about eggs exported from its countries. This included all of the eggs you might be consuming whether it be whole eggs or powdered eggs used in bakeries it does not matter, you may have been exposed to fipronil.

Millions of eggs have been recalled from shops and warehouses in Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany in recent weeks after some were found to contain high levels of the insecticide fipronil, a common ingredient in veterinary products for getting rid of fleas, lice and ticks. It is banned from being used to treat animals destined for human consumption. [Source]

The consequences of mass food production processes will be impacting people across the EU with little done to assess the true costs. All as a result of using an insecticide considered to be a harmful nervous system disruptor, which is effective when encountered on contact or through ingestion. But be assured the Food Safety authorities have it covered:

Britain, France, Sweden and Switzerland have been also put on alert to check the origin o...

Turmeric Extract 100% Effective at Preventing Type 2 Diabetes ADA Journal Study Finds "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Turmeric Extract 100% Effective At Preventing Type 2 Diabetes, ADA Journal Study Finds


Posted on: Tuesday, August 6th 2013 at 1:45 pm

A remarkable human clinical study published in the journal Diabetes Care, the journal of the American Diabetes Association, revealed that turmeric extract was 100% successful at preventing prediabetic patients from becoming diabetic over the course of a 9-month intervention.[1]
Performed by Thailand researchers, the study's primary object was to assess the efficacy of curcumin, the primary polyphenol in turmeric which gives the spice its golden hue, in delaying the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in a prediabetic population.
The study design was a randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled trial including 240 subjects who met the American Diabetic Association's criteria for prediabetes. All subjects were randomly assigned to receive either 250 mg of curcuminoid or placebo capsules for 9 months.
Type 2 diabetes progression was assessed by measuring a wide range of parameters, including changes in the insulin-producing cells within the pancreas known as -cells, insulin resistance, and the anti-inflammatory cytokine known as adiponectin, at four different times:  baseline, 3-, 6-, and 9-month visits during the course of intervention.
The results were reported as follows:
"After 9 months of treatment, 16.4% of subjects in the placebo group were diagnosed with T2DM, whereas none were diagnosed with T2DM in the curcumin-treated group. In addition, the curcumin-treated group showed a better overall function of -cells, with higher HOMA- (61.58 vs. 48.72; P < 0.01) and lower C-peptide (1.7 vs. 2.17; P < 0.05). The curcumin-treated group showed a lower level of HOMA-IR (3.22 vs. 4.04; P < 0.001) and higher adiponectin (22.46 vs. 18.45; P < 0.05) when compared with the placebo group." [emphasis added]

GMO Insulin Increases Morbidity and Mortality in Type 2 Diabetics

Posted on: Thursday, August 24th 2017 at 9:30 am
This article is copyrighted by GreenMedInfo LLC, 2017

Studies show that synthetic, genetically modified insulin could be to blame for a number of complications in diabetes patients.
Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), also known as non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus, is reported to be one of the oldest diseases known to mankind, first documented three thousand years ago in an Egyptian manuscript (1). One of the sequelae of metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes is characterized by hyperglycemia and insulin resistance, which manifests as relative insulin deficiency (2). Insulin, generated by the pancreas, is the hormonal signal produced with sugar or carbohydrate consumption, that enables influx of glucose into the cells to fuel energy-demanding processes. Thus, the insulin resistance which is the cardinal attribute of type 2 diabetes leads to impaired glucose transport to muscle, liver, and adipose cells (2).
In comparison, type 1 diabetes, which is delineated insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, arises secondary to insulin deficiency as a result of autoimmune-mediated destruction of the insulin-producing beta cells of the pancreas (3). Compared to type 2 diabetes, type 1 diabetes may necessitate immediate need for exogenous insulin replacement (4). However, with type 2 diabetes, insulin insensitivity leads to declining insulin production and ultimately pancreatic beta-cell failure (2).
The constellation of risk factors that denote metabolic syndrome, including visceral adiposity, hypertension, and hyperlipidemia, are well-elucidated to augment risk for type 2 diabetes (5).

Math is "Unjust and grounded in discrimination" educators moan "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Two national organizations of math teachers are on a mission to prove that math education is unjust and grounded in a legacy of institutional discrimination.

  • In a joint statement, the groups complain that making students "master the basics" leads to "segregation and separation," and call on math instructors to adopt a "social justice stance" in the classroom.

Two national mathematics organizations are on a mission to prove that math education is unjust and grounded in a legacy of institutional discrimination.

The National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics (NCSM) and TODOS: Mathematics for All ratify social justice as a key priority in the access to, engagement with, and advancement in mathematics education for our countrys youth, the groups declared last year in a joint statement, elaborating that a social justice stance interrogates and challenges the roles power, privilege, and oppression play in the current unjust system of mathematics educationand in society as a whole.

Math has "been used to educate children into different societal roles such as leadership/ruling class."   

Next month, NCSM and TODOS, along with a few other membership societies for math teachers, will host a free webinar drawing upon the principals noted in their joint statement, inviting any interested members of the public to join in hearing A Call for a Collective Action to Develop Awareness: Equity and Social Justice in Mathematics Education.

[RELATED: Teachers learn to use math as Trojan horse for social justice]

The president of NCSM, Connie Schrock, is a math professor at Emporia State University, and multiple professors serve on the board of TODOS.

While the organizations hope that math can be used as a tool for social justice in the future, they also believe that math has historically perpetuated segregation and separation, asserting in their joint statement that mathematics achievement, often measured by standardized tests, has been used as a....

A Totalitarian Society Has Totalitarian Science "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

By Jon Rappoport

Over the past 35 years, Ive exposed as least as much fraudulent science as any reporter around. Thats just a fact.

I mention it, because one would expect Ive learned a few lessons in the process.

And I have.

Government-backed science exists because it is a fine weapon to use, in order to force an agenda of control over the population.

We arent talking about knowledge here. Knowledge is irrelevant. What counts is: How can we fabricate something that looks like the truth?

I keep pointing this out: were dealing with reality builders. In this case, they make their roads and fences and buildings out of data, and they massage and invent the data out of thin air to suit their purposes. After all, they also invent money out of thin air.

Since 1987, one of my goals as a reporter has been to educate the public about false science.

Between then and now, I have found that, with remarkably few exceptions, mainstream reporters are studiously indifferent to false science.

They shy away from it. They pretend it couldnt be. They refuse to consider facts. They and their editors parrot the experts.

Official science has a stranglehold on major media. It has the force of a State religion. When you stop and think about it, official science is, in a significant sense, a holy church. Therefore, it is no surprise that the churchs spokespeople would wield power over major information outlets.

These prelates invent, gu...

Man Documents Visits to North and South Korea, Reveals Eye-Opening Differences in Daily Life "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

North Korea vs South Korea Jacob Laukaitis

Defining himself as a location independent entrepreneur Jacob Laukaitis has spent the past four years traveling around the globe and documenting his experiences on YouTube. Last year, during a 7-day guided trip to North Korea, which he calls the weirdest country I've ever visited, he vowed to return to South Korea in order to understand how the divide has influenced both countries.

The differences he discovered are heartbreaking and profound. In his newest video, Laukaitis discusses just how much Korea has changed from north to south in just a few generations. Moving across South Korea, from Seoul and into the countryside, he can't help but notice the striking differences in freedom and lifestyle. In the South, people could freely express themselves in absolutely any way they wished, whereas in the North everyone was part of some big group, where they dressed the same, looked the same and acted the same, Luakaitis shares with us via email.

During his time in South Korea, the travel enthusiast was able to spend time with a man who was born and raised in North Korea, but managed to escape the country 10 years ago. He worked for 3 years on a farm in China before paying off the debt to the smugglers who helped him leave and get his documents together in order to move to South Korea. It's experiences like this, along with Laukaitis' visit to an amusement park just kilometers from the North Korean border, that make his short film documenting the experience a cut above the rest.

While many photographers visit North Korea and document their guided tours, few projects paint the side by side picture that Laukaitis does. Through his photography and video, he forces us to ask further questions and realize just how much a political divide can rip apart one culture in a short time.

Jacob Laukaitis traveled to North Korea on a strictly guided 7-day tour. One year later, he visited South Korea in order to better understand how the divided country has evolved since it was separated a little over 60 years ago.

Will Medical Magic Mushrooms Make it on the Ballot Next? "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

By Alex Pietrowski

Oregon recently made international news for passing a state bill to decriminalize possession of some hard drugs like cocaine, meth and heroin, demonstrating a progressive option for an end to the disastrous war on drugs. The motivation for this is largely economic, as Oregon struggles with prison overcrowding; however, we do know that legalizing drugs has many positive benefits, as demonstrated in Portugal.

This is especially true when the emphasis shifts from looking at drugs as a criminal issue to seeing it as a health issue. The researched medical benefits of cannabis has even opened the door for legal recreational weed in several U.S. states, and society is benefiting in many ways.

Pushing the envelope in this regard, a group in Oregon is drafting state legislation for the 2020 ballot to legalize psilocybin mushrooms for use in mental health treatment context within a regulated clinical framework.

In other words, medical mushrooms may be the next move in the war on the war on drugs.

This only makes sense, because not only are mushrooms the worlds safest recreational drugs, but according to...

No More Restraint From North Korea; Trio Of Missiles Launched "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

nuke-missile1

The cooling of tensions between the United States and North Korea appears to be over as things begin heating up again.  Kim Jong-uns regime has now launched a trio of missiles in response to joint US and South Korea military drills.

Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, may have spoken too soon. Just last week, Tillerson attempted to dial down tensions even more by noting that there had been no missile tests or provocative acts from North Korea since a United Nations Security Council resolution sanctioning Pyongyang was passed earlier this month. Less than one week after Tillerson praised North Korea for showing restraint in its weapons program, the rogue regime launched three missiles.  Pyongyang fired three short-range ballistic missiles from the Kangwon province, the US Pacific Command said. US Pacific Command, in its initial assessment of the launch on Saturday, said North Koreas first and third missiles failed in flight. It later amended its statement to say the missiles flew approximately 250 kilometers in a northeastern direction.

The second missile launch appeared to blow up immediately after the launch, making it hugely unsuccessful. We will continue to work with our interagency partners on a more detailed assessment of this latest launch and we will provide a public update if warranted, command spokesman Commander David Benham said in a statement. But officials continue to claim that North Koreas missiles are not a threat.

Even though North Korea says it now has the ability to send missiles to the United States mainland, US defense officials said these three short-range missiles at least did not pose a threat to North America or Guam.  North Korean state-run media said the countrys military could strike the US at any time and that neither Guam, Hawaii, nor the US mainland could avoid the...

Johns Hopkins Researcher Releases Shocking Report On Flu Vaccines "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

In 2015, a whole new slew of flu vaccines found themselves getting approved by the Federal Drug Administration.  This isnt an uncommon practice; most flu vaccines pass inspection every year.  Its well known advice that has been passed down from doctor to patient that the flu vaccine is something that we all should get, but it has been quickly surfacing that whats in the vaccinesespecially those from 2015 and aftermight actually be more damaging then simply rolling the dice on getting the flu.

The ingredient that is getting the most flack is called an adjuvant.  The particular one involved is called Squalene, and it has been linked to auto-immune disease side effects.  In fact, it may have been used during chemical attacks in the Gulf War.  Symptoms include chronic fatigue, muscle aches, and neurologic damage.

While it may be a contested subject, it remains that we arent really sure whats going into these vaccines were being convinced should be used.  A scientist who has been working at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, released a report sharing his views on the subject.  And they arent pretty.

Here is an excerpt from yournewswire.com that summarizes aspects of Peter Doshis report.  You can find the original report at the British Medical Journals site.  Determine for yourself if the evidence he presents is credible or not

Promoting influenza vaccines is one of the most visible and aggressive public health policies in the United StatesDrug companies and public officials press for widespread vaccination each fall, offering vaccinations in drugstores and supermarkets. The results have been phenomenal. Only 20 years ago, 32 million doses of influenza vaccine were available in the United States on an annual basis. Today, the total has skyrocketed to 135 million doses.

The vaccine may be less beneficial and less safe than has been claimed, and the threat of influenza seems to be overstatedMandatory vaccination polices have been enacted, often in healthcare facilities, forcing some people to take the vaccine under threat of losing their jobsThe main assertion of the CDC that fuels the push for flu vaccinations each year is that influenza comes with a risk of serious complications which can cause death, especially in senior citizens and those suffering from chronic illnesses

When read carefully, the CDC acknowledges that studies finding any perceived reduction in death rates may be due to the healthy-user effect the tendency for healthier people to be vaccinated more than less-healthy people. The only ran...

Desperate to lay blame on anyone besides the alt-right, they seized on these facts to suggest a counter-narrative to the attack, claiming there was no way that someone with my background just happened to be right there to take the video. Even ignoring the fact that someone with my backgroundraised in Virginia, UVA graduate, lives in Charlottesville, worked to resolve ethnic conflicts overseas, politically progressiveis exactly the kind of person youd expect to find at a protest against Nazis, their theories were absurd and illogical. They wrote that I was a CIA operative, funded by (choose your own adventure) George Soros, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, the IMF/World Bank, and/or a global Jewish mafia to orchestrate the Charlottesville attack in order to turn the general public against the alt-right. I had staged the attack and then worked with MSNBC and other outlets controlled by the left to spread propaganda. They claimed my ultimate goal was to start a race war that would undermine and then overthrow Donald Trump on behalf of the Deep State.

Navajo Times | Krista Allen
Navajo Nation Police officers from at least three districts escort the body of fallen Kayenta Police Officer Nelson L. Martin. The officers made a stop at the Kayenta Public Safety Complex en route to a funeral home in Shiprock.

Published August 27, 2017

KAYENTA, ARIZONA  Navajo Nation Police officers on Thursday afternoon escorted the body of fallen Kayenta Police Officer Nelson L. Martin from Flagstaff to Shiprock.

Martin, 35, was killed in a vehicle accident on Monday night in Gray Mountain, Arizona. He was a passenger in a pickup truck that crashed into a semi.

The truck was driven by Rosales Yazzie who was badly injured and was transported to a hospital where he is recovering. Yazzie was intoxicated at the time, and could be facing vehicular manslaughter charges. He is not a police officer.

Potsdam trustees consider whether to end fluoridation "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

POTSDAM The villages trustees are looking at options for renovating the municipal water treatment plant.

One decision they will have to make soon is whether to continue fluoridating the water.

Gregory O. Thompson, village administrator, said the village received a grant from the state to do an engineering study on its fluoridation equipment to see what it would take to rehabilitate the system. At the same time, they started being approached by residents who wanted the village to do away with fluoridation.

Now we have to decide what we are going to do, he said.

Trustees have to decide whether to go forward with the study or to return the grant money and cease fluoridating the water.

Mr. Thompson admits it will be a hot button issue.

I get emails every day, he said. More against (fluoridating) at this point, but I get emails for it too.

For the time being, the issue is being tabled so trustees can make an informed decision.

Theyre each doing their independent research, said Mr. Thompson. Im at their whim right now.

When the trustees feel they have done enough research, it will come back for a vote. There will also be a public hearing before the vote, likely scheduled for next month.

At this point, I dont have an opinion, said Abby Lee, one of the trustees.

She is still looking at all the affected groups and who to reach out to for more information, although she did say she wanted to call officials in Canton, which has not fluoridated its water since 2001.

Thats part of the research process, identifying who to talk to and then talking to them, she said.

The Earth as a Dump and Refuge "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The opening lines of the title poem in Douglas Crases first book, The Revisionist, played on the promise of an almost inconceivable imaginative strength:

If I could raise rivers, Id raise them
Across the mantle of our past: old headwaters
Stolen, oxbows high and dry while new ones form,
A sediment of history rearranged. If I could unlock
The lakes, Id spill their volume over the till
I know you cultivate: full accumulations swept away,
The habit of prairies turned to mud. If I had glaciers,
Id carve at the stony cliffs of your belief:
Logical mountains lowered notch by notch, erratics
Dropped for you to stumble on. Earthquakes, and Id
Seize your experience at its weakest edge: leveled
Along a fault of memories.

As sheer promise, this was electrifying. But whats incredible is that the poem, and the book as a whole, came through on that promise. To take on geography in this way, to take on history with such assurance nothing in American poetry since Paterson had dared so much and achieved it. All the more astonishing that Crase was doing this in what was simultaneously a form of love poetry, as became clear at the conclusion of that catalogue of Herculean tasks:

When these were done, Id lay around your feet
In endless fields where you could enter and belong,
A place returning and a place to turn to whole

An amorous submission to the conquered beloved, but is it to that recalcitrant country, America itself, or a living and breathing individual? Let each reader decide. John Ashbery was right: Crase looks at the city and the landscape with the amused, disabused eye of a lover. But equally, he looked at love with the eye of a visionary historian.

This book, first published in 1981, was clearly going to be the start of one of the great careers in contemporary poetry. But years slipped by as Crases admirers awaited the next collection. None appeared. Finally, in 1996, a second book arrived, but not a collection of poems. Instead, the curiously titled AMERIFIL.TXT: A Commonplace Book was, as the subtitle indicated, an anthology of passages from the eighteenth through the twentieth centuries on the nature of the American character, grouped under headings such as Doing Your Thing and The Common Defense. A very different book followed in 2004: Both: A Po...

Report: Gen. Kellys Absence at DHS Opens Trump for Criticism "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

As much as the assignment of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Gen. John Kelly to White House chief of staff was designed to remove chaos and restore order in President Donald Trumps administration, it has left it open for criticism for falling to fill the sizable hole atop DHS.

While the Senate would not be able to approve any replacement until after its return from August recess Sept. 5, yet another stalled appointment has left the Trump administration vulnerable, The Hill reported.

The White House understands that they need to get someone in that position quickly because if a terrorist attack were to occur without a leader at the helm of that department, they are vulnerable to the criticism that theyre asleep at the switch, a source close to the White House told The Hill.

Reasons for the lack of an announcement include the administration avoiding giving its opponents time to publicly

As an age-old artistic medium, paper remains a key player in contemporary art. From folded forms to colossal installations, paper art continues to inspire artists today. One practice that has become particularly popular is paper cutting, a genre defined by its inventive and intricate cuts.

While, today, many artists explore the cut paper practice, some stand out among the restlike Vanshika Agarwala, who transforms entire sheets of paper into patterned masterpieces or Patrick Cabral, whose delicate animal portraits add a touch of dimensionality to the 2D medium. Whether they're using a simple pair of scissors or employing an arsenal of X-ACTO knives, these artists prove the endless possibilities provided by the humble piece of paperone snip at a time.

Carcassonne subsidizes animal torture

While the Jean-Cau arena in the space expected to welcome this weekend the two novilladas [bullfights where younger bulls of two to four years of age (novillos) and apprentice toreros (novilleros) are involved] as well as the face-to-face battle programmed by Carcassonne Aficion as part of Feria 2017, several sites were degraded during the night from Friday to Saturday. Tags hostile to the bullfight, also denouncing the municipalitys support for the practice, were sprayed on the wall of the Albert-Domec stadium and on the facades of the General Treasury, on Pierre-Smard Avenue. Other acts [include] the deterioration of two municipal vehicles, whose windscreen wipers have been twisted or torn. The municipality has confirmed its intention to file a complaint.

People Who Chose To Not Evacuate For Hurricane Told To Put SSN On Arms "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

texashurricane

Tens of thousands of Texans have evacuated their homes fearing Hurricane Harvey. Now, one local leader in a coastal Texas community had told residents who chose to stay home during the hurricane, to write their names and Social Security numbers on their arms.

Rockport Mayor Pro Tem Patrick Rios said at a news conference, Were suggesting if people are going to stay here, mark their arm with a Sharpie pen with their name and Social Security number.  He went on to say, We hate to talk about things like that. Its not something we like to do but its the reality, people dont listen. But if people dont listen to evacuation orders, what makes the mayor assume people will willingly mark themselves?

Rios wants people marked to make things easier for the government in the event of deaths. He also claims that that grim step is necessary to prepare for the worst in case scenario of numerous deaths among the people who freely chose to remain in the area.  If you think this sounds a little bit like Nazis forcing the Jews to wear yellow stars on their clothing for a quick government identification, you arent the only one.

According to ABC News, seven counties and five cities, including Rockport, had issued mandatory evacuations, while several other areas have issued voluntary evacuations. For those evacuating or staying, certain steps can be taken ahead of the storms expected landfall early Saturday morning to protect your home and property from damage.

Four Uncompromising Finnish Women Artists "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Helene Schjerfbeck, Self-Portrait, Black Background (1915), oil on canvas, 45.5 x 36 cm, Herman and Elisabeth Hallonblad collection, Finnish National Gallery / Ateneum Art Museum (courtesy Finnish National Gallery / Hannu Aaltonen)

The story of the Finnish modernist painter Helene Schjerfbeck is a fascinating one, which was first told in America in 1992, 25 years ago, when she was the subject of an exhibition at the National Academy of Design. Writing for The New York Times (November 27, 1992), Roberta Smith characterized the exhibition of this neglected artist as revelatory [and] bittersweet. Smiths observation still holds true, perhaps even more so, in the exhibition Independent Visions: Helene Schjerfbeck and Her Contemporaries at Scandinavia House (April 29 October 7, 2017), which fleshes out a story of independence and perseverance that keeps needing to be told, if only to remind us how complicated and chaotic history is.

Starting with Schjerfbeck, the exhibition calls attention to the pioneering role of four Finnish woman artists at the end of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century: Helene Schjerfbeck (18621946), Sigrid Schauman (18771979), Ellen Thesleff (18691954), and Elga Sesemann (19222007). Schjerfbeck, Schauman and Thesleff belong to the same generation and were roughly contemporary with Edvard Munch (18631944). This means that they were born in the day of the horse and carriage and lived to witness the advent of the nuclear age. Art also underwent seismic changes over that time. Not everyone was receptive to what was going on, and many saw the changes as signs of decline, faddishness, decadence, erosion of values, and  worse.

RTE, Europes Largest Electricity Operator, Sabotaged, Again "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

from Indymedia Grenoble

from Earth First! Journal

With nearly 105,000 km of lines, RTEs grid is the biggest in Europe including 60 cross-border connections with the neighbouring countries composed of 1,231 transformers, 2,710 RTE substations and 3,504 delivery points

The construction site for very high voltage lines in the Haute Durance valley did not proceed unhindered. RTE [Rseau de Transport dlectricit = Electricity Transmission Network] counts around fifty machines put out of harms way. It appears that after the sugar in the tanks, the cut cables, and the punctured tires, a new method has appeared:

On February 9, a prefabricated RTE near Embrun was starting to smoke.

During the night of Wednesday to Thursday, August, 24th, a car belonging to RTE went up in flames in Chorges

Not to mention the numerous attempts made on machines or bases of pylons

Despite the progress of the work, certain e.s [??] do not resign and continue to put matches in the RTE wheels. These fires warm our hearts and give us courage. Even if we do not all have the same methods, we say we are in solidarity and we will fight with them if there is any prosecution. In any case, everything was attempted to stop this project: the remedies did not give anything, the manifestations and the blockages ignored. So we were really left with no choice! (There would be much to criticize on the usefulness of the democratic approaches and on the fact that it is the power that leaves no choices for its enemies ) NdAtt.

He used a rope and nail to tether a stone to a wood block. He made another work the same year, in which he attached a metal screw eye inside a box. He then tied twine to the screw eye and wrapped it around a stone that, in this instance, he placed outside the box. The person standing next to me says: ball and chain.

2.
He made a drawing using a car (a Model A Ford, to be exact) as the drawing instrument. A friend drove the car slowly, inching it forward, on joined sheets of typing paper that had been carefully placed in its path. Two tire tracks are visible, one in ink and the other the impression left by the tire treads. The tire tracks, perfectly aligned from sheet to sheet, form a scroll nearly 24 feet long, a drawing of two wide lines, one of which is ghostly, that stretches from one wall to another. He could have made a dozen or more of these scrolls, but he was too restless to do it again.

FREE Simple Boat Neck Top Pattern One Hour Project "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

simple boat neck top patternThis long sleeved, simple boat top can be made in only one hour assuming you have a fully functioning sewing machine.  The top is comfortable to wear and very functional.  It can be worn in a wide variety of settings and complements all kinds of different looks.

I was a little bit annoyed while making this top.  As you know, I took a few weeks off to go to Europe looking for inspiration.  I brought with me one of those hand-held sewing machines and was planning to share with you 4 or 5 projects made with it, so in case you ever needed to make something on the go, you could do the same thing.  Sadly, I didn't check to see if the machine actually worked!  So I didn't manage to get any use out of the thing at all.  If anyone has had any success with a machine like THIS, I'd certainly love to hear about it in the comments below.

simple boat neck topAfter many attempts trying to make the machine work, I decided to take it apart and finally managed to sew a little.  However, the tension was never good enough to make anything that I would be happy to wear.  Needless to say, the machine ended in the rubbish bin.  That was plan A. On to plan B, sew by hand.

I decided to try to answer the question: Can you really sew knit by hand?  And if so, what stitch is the best? As it turns out, I had to use a combination of a back stitch and a running stitch but it seemed to come out OK.  The only reason I ended sewing the simple boat neck top pattern by hand is that I packed the wrong pile of clothes.  More on that later.

Perfectionism as a Risk Factor for Suicide "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

From The British Psychological Society: In the most comprehensive test on perfectionism and suicidality to date, perfectionism was found to be a major risk factor for suicide. The results showed that 13 out of 15 different measures of perfectionism were associated with increased suicidal thoughts.

the researchers said the data are consistent with case histories and theoretical accounts suggesting people high in perfectionism appear to think, behave, perceive, and relate in ways that have suicidogenic consequences. Perfectionism is associated with intense psychological pain they said. Perfectionists have a harsh way of relating to a self they find deficient. Their lives are typically stressful and they often have a prickly, conflictual style of relating to others, leaving them isolated and lacking support. Amid such pain, Smith and his colleagues conclude, perfectionists may think about, or engage in, suicide as a means of escaping a life they find unbearable.'

Ive worked with thousands of doctors and the number who consciously are not looking out for the best interests of their patients can be counted on one or two fingers. But, at the same time, if doctors interact with industry and dont recognize the results of those interactions then theyre putting the interest of the industry above the interest of their patient. Doctors, and the medical profession in general, are in a conflicted situation. The way to get out of that is to create a firewall between medicine and industry.

To the Bone: The Trouble With Anorexia on Film "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

From The Atlantic: The new Netflix film To the Bone, which tells the story of a womans struggle with anorexia, reflects our cultures morbid fascination and obsession with emaciated female bodies. Critiques of the film speak to how difficult it is to responsibly portray anorexia without feeding this fascination or contributing to cultural messages that create eating disorders.

The author Hilary Mantel, in a 2004 essay for The Guardian, considered how the virtue associated with fasting fits into a broader cultural sympathy for anorexia, compared with the widespread condemnation of binge eaters. Though the temporarily thin find it easy to preach against the fat, we are much more interested in anorexia than in obesity, she writes. We all understand self-indulgence, but are afraid that self-denial might be beyond us. Films like To the Bone, however well-intentioned, feed this fascination. Ellen does so many sit-ups per day that she has bruises on her spine. In one scene, she resists a bite of her favorite candy bar with extraordinary, painful self-resolve.

It isnt just anorexics and spiritual leaders who preach the virtues of self-control. The most popular mantras propagated by trainers and fitness bloggers on Instagram (sweat is fat crying) are often indistinguishable from the slogans on pro-ana websites. We understand, as cultural consumers, that anorexia is a disease, but we also, in some ways, admire it, and all the abstemiousness that it implies. The on-hiatus NBC show The Biggest Loser, in which obese contestants competed to see who can shed the most excess weight, used to push the scripture of discipline and physical will to several million viewers a week. The author Roxane Gay once described the spectacle of the contestants pushing themselves in inhuman wayscrying and sweating and vomitingvisibly purging their bodies of weakness.'

Homebrew Connoisseur Can Rank Them All from Worst to Somehow Even Worse "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

BROOKLYN, N.Y. Homebrew beer connoisseur Ira Rose succeeded again last week in ranking all local homebrews he tasted from worst to somehow even worse, according to friends and family.

Its something Ive always been able to do, Rose said, wincing as he drank what appeared to be pure yeast. My family has a rich history of homebrewing, so Ive tasted every godless abomination of grain, hops, and yeast imaginable. My pallet is as refined as my stomach is damaged.

Local homebrewers were reportedly in awe of Roses abilities.

Its incredible, said Ella Pearson, proud brewer of her own 90 Second IPA recipe. When I put any of these poorly concocted, borderline-poisonous beers anywhere near my face, I can barely keep my lunch down. But Rose that man can tell you exactly why one beer makes you want to throw up, while another beer gives you diarrhea, even if you didnt drink it.

Skeptics asked why Rose has yet to use his gift to help homebrewers, rather than mock them with a clearly snarky ranking system.

Related:

Ira said that on a scale of one to 10, my latest brew was a 12 to the power of a dog licking a cats asshole, homebrewer Julius Little said while contaminating the local waterways by dumping another flawed batch into the Newtown Creek. I asked him what I could do better, and he told me to buy a cold 30-pack of Old Milwaukee, put it in the sun until its skunked, then empty out the cans and pee in them, and sell that instead.

Then again, homebrewing is more art than science, he added, so maybe Ill try that.

While Rose boasts the title of homebrew beer connoisseur, he admitted he never got into homebrewing himself.

It just never happened for me, Rose said. But I did get a degree in marketing, which I use to optimize the reach of clickbait news articles. So I guess I still wound up funneling shit down peoples throats for a living.

Only 90s Kids Will Get This Bill From the Emergency Room for $200,000 "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Nowadays, it seems like everybody wants to claim theyre a 90s kid.

AS IF!

We were getting sick of all these fake 90s kids so weve put together the ultimate REAL 90s kid test! And its so simple! All you have to do is go to your mailbox and open it up because only real 90s kids will get this bill from the emergency room for $200,000.

You might be able to name all sorts of crazy 90s trends like Crystal Pepsi and Smarterchild but that proves nothing! Any true child of the 90s is going to have a box under their bed bursting with unopened collection notices. Sure, back in the 90s you were afraid of monsters living under your bed, but it turns out the reality of medical care the United States is way scarier.

COWABUNGA!

Speaking of legendary scares from the 90s, MOVE OVER JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT. We know what true 90s kids did last summer. They gradually depleted their savings trying to keep up with hospital bills and the bank foreclosed on their home. Now theyre divorced, sad, and live a tiny apartment just like Ross from Friends.

YOURE SUCH A ROSS!

Related: 15 Years Later: Kazaa Still Best Way to Download The Bum Bum Song

All those games of Oregon Trail never prepared real 90s kids for this. Even if you picked the banker at the start of the game there is no way you could afford a $12,000 ambulance ride. Remember how in that game when one of your party members died youd write something funny like, RIP Fart on their tombstone? Well, if youre a real 90s kid even the smallest joke about death now fills your mind with utter and complete darkness. As they said in the 90s, this all-consuming dread is ALL THAT AND A BAG OF CHIPS!

So sure, some people can name every episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation. And others still wear babydoll dresses and combat boots. But dont be fooled. Only real, honest-to-goodness 90s kids will endure years of sacrifice and hard work to climb out of horrible debt due to a freak accident that sent them to the hospital for lifesaving treatment.

Chemotherapy Side Effects Enable Cancer Cells To Spread From Breast To Lungs "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

by Dena Schmidt; NaturalHealth365

Most people are aware that chemotherapy, a primary cancer treatment, can cause harsh chemotherapy side effects. However, now research by Tsonwin Hai and his team of scientists is showing that chemotherapy can actually trigger cellular responses that lead to the spread of more cancer in adjacent areas.

Breast cancer survival rates have been improving in recent years. However, this news that chemotherapy can actually promote the spread of cancer would make it by far one of the most disturbing chemotherapy side effects ever documented.

Common chemotherapy treatment triggers Atf3 gene, increasing cancer-related cellular stress


The researchers, working out of the Ohio State University in Columbus biological chemistry and pharmacology department, found that chemotherapy used as a treatment for breast cancer has a counterintuitive effect which increases the risk of metastasis instead of reducing it as intended.

Past studies had also suggested that chemo can cause cellular changes in both humans and mice with breast cancer. The Ohio State University researchers decided to dig deeper. The team studied the drug paclitaxel, one of the most common frontline chemotherapy treatments used for breast, lung and ovarian cancer. Specifically, they looked at the relationship of breast cancer to the closest organs, the lungs, when treated with paclitaxel.

Almond Milk: Its Unlikely Cancer-Causing Ingredient "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Most health conscious consumers have found these products to be significantly healthier than traditional milk and pasteurized dairy products. Unfortunately, there may be a cancer-causing ingredient lurking in these popular nut milks. There are so many food products that market themselves as healthy alternatives. Many shoppers just buy the claim and dont investigate the actual ingredients. Some of these products are great, but others contain questionable additives. If you search your refrigerator and cupboards you may be astonished at how many food sources contain the additive carrageenan. Carrageenan, surprisingly, is found in many organic products that most believe to be very healthy and are often touted by health professionals. Should you be concerned about carrageenan in your food?

If Your Child Shows Any of These 15 Signs They Are A Natural Born Empath "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

 

Empathetic children are highly sensitive and during their younger years have a much harder time managing sensory overload. Their senses are just far more intense than those of the rest of the world.

Just about everyone fails to truly understand the child empath, and this is something that breaks my heart. When it comes to helping the child empath grow, the right guidance is very important. These generations of empaths to come will be our only hope of making this world a better place once we are dead and gone.

If you think your child may be an empath, check to see if they have the following traits. Child empaths are an amazing gift, one that will continue to give well after you have passed. Being the parent to a child empath truly says a lot about you as a person as well.

15 Signs Your Child is an Empath:

1. They only have a few good friends.

Your child does not want anything to do with shallow friendships. He or she has a few loyal friends, and that is more than enough for them.

2. They take on the stress of others.

If something is bothering you then it is also bothering your child. If you find that your child takes on your stress then you might just have an empath on your hands.

3. They act out when you are upset.

This is because they do not know how to handle the emotions that they are feeling.

4. They connect on a deeper level with plants and animals.

They just seem to fit in with nature much more than children normally do.

5. They are intuitive.

Does your child just seem to know the truth even when it is not something that they should understand? Most empathic children are extremely intuitive, meaning they hold the ability to understand something immediately, without reason.

6. They like to spend time alone.

Rather than spending time with other children your child enjoys playing alone.

7. They are good listeners.

They can and will be the shoulder for others to cry on.

10 Tips To Help You Trek To Basecamp More Efficiently "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

10 Tips To Help You Trek To Basecamp More Efficiently

When it comes to our emergency preparedness, practice makes perfect. We cannot just throw a bunch of high-speed gear into a backpack and consider ourselves prepped for the trek to basecamp or our BOL. Not only do we need to be familiar with our gear but we also need to master the skills to implement this gear in a crisis. The best way that I know of to develop and maintain these skills is to get out in the field, setup various hypothetical situations and get to work!

10 Tips To Help You Trek To Basecamp

One of the ways that I implement my training is to put on my go bag and hit the trail for a couple day trek. With this type of training, I get to address various facets of my preparedness plan. First off, I trek out a minimum distance of 3 miles. This helps me to gauge how far I can move out as well as the time that it takes me to cover that distance. This is crucial information that I need to truly understand my capabilities as well as my limitations.

10 Tips To Help You Trek To Basecamp More Efficiently

Since I am moving out on foot, I am limited on what I can bring with me to basecamp. This makes me focus much more on the contents of my go bag. The more often that I trek, the more that my gear choices get tweaked. Once you are in the middle of nowhere, with only the contents of your go bag to live off of Lets just say that I learn my lessons real quick when I forget to pack a piece of crucial gear.

We both realize that its one thing to believe that you are prepared. However, our goal is to know that we are ready for any crisis that comes our way. Continual practice and scenario training are a must if we hope to ride out an emergency situation. I realize that if I can bode well in the field for both myself and my family, we will have options that most of our neighbors will not. Options and choices are intangible items that greatly add to my chances of survival.

In order to make your trekking experience sustainable, it needs to be comfortable and even fun. If you have an awful experience every time that you move out on foot You probably will not be investing time and effort in this type of valua...

Studies Show What Happens To The Human Body When We Walk Barefoot On Earth "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

by Arjun Walia; Collective Evolution

Grounding, or earthing, as some people call it, involves placing your feet directly on the ground without shoes or socks as a barrier. The logic behind this practice relates to the intense negative charge carried by the Earth. This charge is electron-rich, theoretically serving as a good supply of antioxidants and free-radical destroying electrons.

Dr. James Oschman, a PhD in biology from the University of Pittsburgh and an expert in the field of energy medicine, notes:

Subjective reports that walking barefoot on the Earth enhances health and provides feelings of well-being can be found in the literature and practices of diverse cultures from around the world. For a variety of reasons, many individuals are reluctant to walk outside barefoot, unless they are on holiday at the beach. (source)

The picture above represents Improved facial circulation (right image) after 20 minutes of grounding, as documented by a Speckle Contrast Laser Imager (dark blue=lowest circulation; dark red=highest circulation). Image Source: Scientific Research Publishing

It makes sense if you think about it; in our most natural state, we wouldnt really be wearing any sort of cover on our feet. Putting your feet on the ground enables you to absorb large amounts of negative electrons through the soles of your feet which, in turn, can help to maintain your body at the same negatively charged electrical potential as the Earth.

This is What It Means to Just Be Yourself and 5 Ways to Actually Do It "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

 

Throughout our lives we are told on many occasions that we should just be ourselves, this is something that is much easier said than done. What exactly does it even mean to just be yourself?

There are so many questions associated with this topic. What if who we are sucks? What if we are just genuinely bad people? What if being ourselves is going to negatively impact other people? Are we really even who we think we are?

This is where things start to get complicated, and this is because who we think we are is not usually who we actually are. Most people have a story made up inside their heads, but the person underneath the story is who we actually are. It is so easy to get caught up in a world of make belief.

Most of us spend our entire lives trying to find the person behind the mask, only to realize that we had already accomplished that a very long time ago. The truth is, most of us are too scared to face the facts. I know I was, I was so much of a people pleaser that I was scared that people wouldnt like the real me. However, the time came when I knew that I needed to take off the mask, and I have never looked back.

Even the best of us need a little help in that department, so if you are feeling lost just use the following steps.

1. Live in the moment

Living in the moment is not as hard as it may seem. This is going to bring about a new sense of freedom that you may not have experienced before. In this, you will be able to better understand where you wish to go in life, and who you are as a person.

So if you want to move out of the city you live in, do it. If you want to quit your job, and do something that actually makes you happy, do it. Remember, you only have one life to live, make the best of it!

2. Stop caring about .what other people think

If you want to dye your hair bright green and shave off your eyebrows, do it. Dont worry about what society or the people around you will think. Your need to fit in is not more important than allowing yourself to be unique.

All Sheeple Citizens Who Want To Receive Government Benefits Must Agree To Be Microchipped In The Near Future "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

by Jayson Veley; Natural News

Late last month, it was reported that a Wisconsin company called Three Square Market was planning on surgically implanting microchips underneath the skin of its employees for convenience purposes. Three Square Market CEO Todd Westby told KSTP, the Twin Cities ABC affiliate station, that the microchip implants are the next big thing thats inevitably going to happen, and we want to be a part of it.

Westby explained that the microchip would be capable of doing a number of different things, from allowing people to purchase food in the break room by simply scanning their hand, to serving as an electronic key to open doors and access computers.


The microchips use Radio Frequency Identification technology (RFID) to function, which also happens to be the technology used when you pay for items using your iPhone or Android device.

We foresee the use of RFID technology to drive everything from making purchases in our office break room market, opening doors, use of copy machines, logging into our office computers, unlocking phones, sharing business cards, storing medical/health information, and used as payment at other RFID terminals, said the Three Square Market CEO in a statement. Eventually, this technology will become standardized allowing you to use this as your passport, public transit, all purchasing opportunities, etc.

America is Falling into the Trap of Divide and Conquer "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

by Phillip Schneider; Waking Times

Tensions have never been higher after the horrible events which occurred at Charlottesville. Many people on the left see this as a call-to-arms against the ideological right, which many of them view as actual Nazis, while the right sees the move to tear down the Robert E. Lee statue as an attack on history and free speech.

There are several competing media narratives surrounding this event, including attempts to wrongly brand more people on the right as White Supremacists when in reality most right-of-center Americans do not support the radicals at the Unite the Right rally in Virginia. This includes White Nationalists like Richard Spencer as well as Neo-Nazis, only a statistically insignificant number of which were at the rally.


Neither Side Represents a Majority

Nearly all people can agree, both on the left and the right, that Nazism and racial supremacy in any form have no place in America. However, what the mainstream media and far-left wont say is that theres no more room for censorship or violence coming from groups such as the National Socialist Workers Party (Nazi Party) in the United States as there is for censorship or violence which comes from left-leaning groups like Black Lives Matter or ANTIFA. Free speech applies to all speech, including that which is deemed offensive or controversial; thats one of the most fundamental principles of western society.

Hancock suggests the survivors of earths lost civilization, left us unmistakable clues in the form of advanced technology aand ancient ruins.

Graham looks at the clues cattered around the world in ancient myths, maps and monuments and in deliberately buried time-capsules, such as mysterious 12,000-year-old sites like Gunung Padang in Indonesia and Gobekli Tepe in Turkey, these clues appear to have been designed to reawaken humanity at a time when an advanced global civilization had once again emerged.

ReCODE: The Reversal of Cognitive Decline "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

By Dr. Mercola

Alzheimers is now the third leading cause of death in the United States, right behind heart disease and cancer. While prevalence is rapidly increasing, the good news is you actually have a great deal of control over this devastating disease.

Dr. Dale Bredesen, director of neurodegenerative disease research at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) School of Medicine, and author of The End of Alzheimers: The First Program to Prevent and Reverse Cognitive Decline, has identified a number of molecular mechanisms at work in this disease, and has created a novel program to treat and reverse it.

Originally known as the MEND (Metabolic Enhancement of Neurodegeneration) Protocol, the program is now called ReCODE (Reversal of Cognitive Decline).1

You hear things that sound like hyperbole when it comes to Alzheimers disease, but unfortunately, theyre not, Bredesen says. Its currently costing the United States over $220 billion annually. It is a trillion-dollar global health problem. It was the sixth leading cause of death Now, it has become the third leading cause of death in the United States. This is something thats set to bankrupt Medicare.

It strikes about 15 percent of the population, so its incredibly common. In fact, you have the pathophysiology of the disease for about 20 years before the diagnosis is made. Many of us are walking around with early Alzheimers without realizing it. Its a huge problem on the rise, and there hasnt been any sort of a monotherapeutic approach that has worked for this terrible illness.

Why Functional Medicine Is the Ideal Treatment Approach

Projections estimate Alzheimers will affect about half of the senior population in the next generation. Genetic predisposition does play a role. An estimated 75 million Americans have the single allele for Apolipoprotein E epsilon 4 (ApoE4). Those who are ApoE4 positive have a 30 percent lifetime risk of developing the disease. Approximately 7 million have two copies of the gene, which puts them at a 50 percent lifetime risk.

That said, even if you have one or two copies of th...

Yogurt is one of the most accessible fermented foods you can eat, with a rich history going all the way back 6,000 years ago in Central Asia, most likely in Turkey. During that time, herdsmen preserved the milk harvested from their cattle in animal stomachs that contained probiotics. As a result, the milk became fermented, which provided them a wealth of health benefits.

 

Eventually, yogurt reached the United States in the 1700s through Turkish immigrants, but it only became widespread during the 1950s when the awareness of consuming organic and fermented foods was on the rise....

Fake Jewelry Threatens Native American Household Income "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Published August 27. 2017

SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA The Indian Arts and Crafts Act was created to stop people from copying Native American designs and police online sales of fake jewelry as well. This act was made with the intent to criminalize the buying and selling of fake Native American art or jewelry when it is not. However, there seems to be more and more people trying to get away with it than ever before.

NativeAmericanJewelry.com, an online seller of Native-made art and jewelry is trying to spread awareness of this epidemic and urges people to search for respected sellers for their Native jewelry needs. The spokesman of the company, Steven Onida, gave a few words about this recent influx of fake Native American jewelry flooding the markets:

Its no surprise that people are trying to sell fake Native art. The rise in Native culture since 2016 alone is enough to get into the market. As a company that partners and meets with Native artists, Im truly horrified and I hope that people take a stand wherever they come across people trying to make a quick buck off of fakes. We are mainly seeing this happen in small areas, dominantly in Santa Fe, but to a lesser degree, its happening across the country. The effect its having on the Native community is truly devastating.

Onida and the team at NativeAmericanJewelry.com take great pride in the work they do and the artists they represent. They want to offer people advice when they go out to shop for Native pieces so they can learn to better identify legitimate retailers.

The first thing people should ask for is what tribe made the piece. Those that actually sell Native art and jewelry should know the tribe, artists, and be able to tell people a bit about the piece as well.

The next thing that people should look for, advises Onida, is the materials used to make the piece.

Typically, Native jewelry features both turquoise and real sterling silver; both materials are often faked when people try to sell them. Doing some at-home research can go a long way to help people learn how to identify fake Native American jewelry.

For oil pulling, use an oil (coconut oil is very popular for this process) and swish it around the mouth for around 15-20 minutes once a day.

When held in the mouth for this amount of time, the oil will draw any unwanted bodies such as infections, toxins and mouth bacteria out of the mouth and into the oil, where it is expelled when spat out at the end of the routine.

White Supremists Rallies Shut Down in San Francisco: American Indians Host Anti-Racism Prayer Rally "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

In the shadow of the Golden Gate Bridge, some of the prayer rally pose for photograph.

Published August 26, 2017

SAN FRANCISCO The right-wing white supremist rallies planned for San Francisco this weekend never happened. Citing problems with obtaining permits from San Fransicso officials, the Patroit Freedom rally was canceled on Friday night. Another rally planned for Saturday was also canceled.

Several counter rallies involving thousands of people were held instead, including one in Crissy Field, conducted by a group of American Indians, primarily from the San Francisco Bay Area. Joining the San Francisco Native group was Chase Iron Eyes (Standing Rock Sioux) from Last Real Indians. Iron Eyes was there to pay his respects to the Ohlone lands and participated in the prayer service with fellow organizer Isabella Zizi. She was assisted by Brytnee Miller in our peaceful prayer walk and gathering.

These are times like this that we face hate with prayer and love, Iron Eyes told the crowd of a couple dozen.

During four hours of encouraging words and songs, the group networked about numerous causes of the Indigenous People.

I was very happy to see more young adults getting involved with rallies, walks, and marches. I express this a lot when I travel, said Lydia West (Cheyenne & Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma), who lives in Alpine, California and who attended the prayer.

All Citizens Who Want to Receive Gvt Benefits Must Agree to Be Microchipped in the Near Future "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

(Natural News) Late last month, it was reported that a Wisconsin company called Three Square Market was planning on surgically implanting microchips underneath the skin of its employees for convenience purposes.

Three Square Market CEO Todd Westby told KSTP, the Twin Cities ABC affiliate station, that the microchip implants are the next big thing thats inevitably going to happen, and we want to be a part of it.

Westby explained that the microchip would be capable of doing a number of different things, from allowing people to purchase food in the break room by simply scanning their hand, to serving as an electronic key to open doors and access computers.

The microchips use Radio Frequency Identification technology (RFID) to function, which also happens to be the technology used when you pay for items using your iPhone or Android device.

Harvard Study Confirms: #ExxonKnew and Misled Public About Climate Threat for Decades "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Fooling the public for the bottom line

ExxonMobil contributed quietly to the science and loudly to raising doubts about it, researchers conclude

From an Article by Jessica Corbett, Common Dreams, August 23, 2017

Researchers from Harvard studied nearly 200 ExxonMobil communications and concluded that the company actively misled the public about climate change, contradicting findings by even their own scientists.

A peer-reviewed study has confirmed  a discrepancy between what ExxonMobils scientists and executives discussed about climate change privately and in academic circles, and what it presented to the general public.

Even while ExxonMobil scientists were contributing to climate science and writing reports that explained it to their bosses, the company was paying for advertisements that told a very different tale says Geoffrey Supran and Naomi Oreskes, Harvard researchers

ExxonMobil contributed quietly to the science and loudly to raising doubts about it, wrote Harvard researchers Geoffrey Supran and Naomi Oreskes in their study, published in the scientific journal Environmental Research Letters.

Even while ExxonMobil scientists were contributing to climate science and writing reports that explained it to their bosses, the company was paying for advertisements that told a very different tale, they concluded in a New York Times op-ed on Tuesday.

Exxon has officially run out of excuses, said Greenpeace USA climate liability campaigner Naomi Ages. This peer-reviewed study from Harvard is just the latest piece of evidence indicating that the largest oil company in the world knew about the risks of climate change, but concealed them from the public and shareholders.

The study confirmed findings from 2015 reports by InsideClimate News and The Los Angeles Times, which claimed the company had long known about the risks of climate change but publicly denied them, and triggered probes by the New York and Massachusetts attorneys general as well as the Securities and Exchange Commission.

In their New York Times op-ed, the researchers note that they were pushed to undertake their study by ExxonMobils response to the 2015 reports:

Natural Gas Pipelining Under the Potomac River is Very Risky "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Pipelines and protests: Why environmentalists oppose funneling natural gas under the Potomac River

From an Article by Patricia Sullivan, Washington Post, August 6, 2017

HANCOCK, MD Activists with the Potomac Riverkeeper Network set up at Paw Paw Tunnel Campground near Oldtown, Md., for a weekend paddle and protest over TransCanadas planned natural gas pipeline.

The pipeline that TransCanada wants to build is short, 3.5 miles, cutting through the narrowest part of Maryland. It would duck briefly under the Potomac River at this 1,500-resident town, bringing what business leaders say is much-needed natural gas to the eastern panhandle of West Virginia.

But environmentalists say that brief stretch could jeopardize the water supply for about 6 million people, including most of the Washington-metropolitan area.

Thats why dozens of protesters have gathered each weekend this summer at various points along the upper Potomac, part of a growing national movement that opposes both oil and natural gas pipelines and wants businesses and governments to embrace green energy instead.

Inspired by the Dakota Access oil pipeline protest at Standing Rock, N.D., and the broad wave of demonstrations that has energized the left since President Trumps inauguration, the protesters hope to persuade Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) and his environment secretary to stop the pipeline, which got an enthusiastic green light from West Virginia.

Its got me worried, said Andy Billotti, 53, who wore a T-shirt from Aprils Peoples Climate March in Washington as he erected his tent at the Paw Paw Tunnel Campground near Oldtown, Md., for one recent protest. If something were to happen, that fracked poison would come down the river ... right into our wells.

Opponents gathered at the McCoys Ferry campsite in Clear Spring, Md., over the weekend and will be at Taylors Landing next weekend. The protest at Taylors Landing, near Sharpsburg, Md., is slated to include state Sen. Richard S. Madaleno Jr. (D-Montgomery), a gubernatorial candidate and the latest of a handful of politicians to take part.

The exact year and place of his birth are still not known, yet this does not prevent scholars and early music lovers from stating that Josquin was one of the most renowned musicians of his time. As Martin Luther said of him: He is the master of the notes. They must do as he wills; as for the other composers, they have to do as the notes will (Gustave Reese, Music in the Renaissance). On the other hand, in 1567, Cosimo Bartoli of Florence wrote that Josquin was without a peer in music, even as Michelangelo was peerless in architecture, painting, and sculpture.

Trump pardons Satan "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

President Donald Trump has pardoned Satan. In a brief statement released late Friday evening, the White House praised Satans career.

Throughout his time as Satan he continued his lifes work of putting temptation in front of the public and allowing murder and mayhem to manifest themselves across the USA in so many innovative ways, the statement read. Satan is now thousands of years old, and after more than 200 years of admirable service to our nation, he is a worthy candidate for a Presidential pardon.

Satan thanked Trump on Twitter The last few years have been hell. Thank you @realdonaldtrump for seeing my conviction for what it is: a religious and political witch hunt by do-gooders and the alt-left!, he posted.

Satan continued: I am humbled and incredibly grateful to President Trump. I look forward to putting this chapter of Revelations behind me and contributing to his future presidential chaos.

Trump hinted at his decision earlier this week during a raucous campaign rally in Phoenix. So, was Satan convicted for doing his job? Trump queried his supporters. Ill make a prediction. I think hes going to be just fine, OK.

Trump tweeted Friday night about his decision: I am pleased to inform you that I have just granted a full Pardon to Satan. He keeps us safe from pinko-left-wing commies, LGBTQ activists, immigrant-rapists and anyone concerned about the greater good of the USA! Im his number one fan! #MakeSatanGreatAgain

Catholic Church and UK Government Claim Child Sex Abuse Victims Can Consent to their Attacks "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

By: Kalee Brown, Collective Evolution

Catholic churches all around the world have been accused of sex scandals, including the Vatican, which has allegedly paid an astonishing $4 billion since 1950 to settle sexual abuse claims. Far too often these stories involve priests taking advantage of their positions of authority in order to sexually abuse people, often children.

More recently, the UK government and the Catholic church have come under public scrutiny for claiming that victims of child sexual abuse consented to their rapes in order to avoid compensating the victims. The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) establishes which victims get compensated, and they do so by determining whether or not the victim gave consent, even if the victim is a child well under the legal age limit.

The Telegraph reported last month that, according to CICA, A victim can consent in fact even though in law they may be deemed not to have consented.

Their militancy makes them dangerous. Theyre unrelated to traditional left-wing political activists opposed to violence.

Earlier anti-fascist groups in America called themselves anti-racists. Current Antifa ones demonstrate violently against what they oppose notably against Trump during his campaign, inauguration and once in office.

According to TruthFeed.com, the George Soros-funded Alliance for Global Justice gave $50,000 to help fund the Antifa.

Its adherents believe defeating fascism requires challenging it violently. They sanitize their agenda by calling it the right to organize, protest and boycott.

This is What a Solar Eclipse Looks Like to a Weather Satellite "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Yesterday, we shared what a total solar eclipse looks like to a weather balloon floating in near space. If you want to zoom out even more, check out this amazing video captured by a weather satellite from outer space.

The video, released by scientists at UWMadisons Space Science and Engineering Center (SSEC), was captured by the GOES-16, one of the worlds most advanced weather satellites.

The satellite photographed the Earth once every five minutes during the eclipse, and the resulting timelapse video shows the shadow of the moon crossing the United States from west to east.

But thats not all. GOES-16 has another camera system on board that can capture single-channel, near-infrared images that detect the presence of lightning. Using this camera, the satellite also created a timelapse video showing the moons shadow passing through severe weather formations filled with flashes of lightning.

The first instrument of its kind in geostationary orbit, GLM observes total lightning (both in-cloud and cloud-to-ground), and offers a constant vigil for lightning flashes day and night across the Western Hemisphere, NOAASatellites writes. Rapid increases of lightning are a signal that a storm is strengthening and could become more dangerous.

How to Radically Reduce Your Expenses So You Can Change Your Life "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

How often do you hear people talk about how they would live their dreams if they only had a bit more money? People always dream about

quitting the jobs they hate starting a business moving to a remote cabin in the woods staying home with the kids being completely debt-free having a little homestead and raising their own food living in an RV and roaming the country

but they often feel that these things are financially unreachable. Instead of doing it, they sigh and decide its completely unreachable.

Do you do this yourself? If you have unrealized dreams and goals, then maybe its time to take a good hard look at your finances and enact a sweeping plan to radically reduce your expenses.

The question isnt really, Can you do this?

The question is, What are you willing to change to do this?

DO WE PLAN OUR LIVES BEFORE WE ARE BORN? "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The theory that we plan our lives was something I had never heard of before 2011. Up until that point, I could not have even imagined such a thing. Even after hearing about it 3 years ago, it took me quite a long time to let this concept into my paradigm. How I stumbled upon it wasnt even through my avid research of the afterlife and reincarnation. It came to me through a vision I had. Before the vision, I believed in reincarnation. The idea of it had always fascinated me and I felt strongly that I did have past lives; I just didnt know what those lives entailed. After three years of intense research and listening to many people from all different backgrounds and beliefs speak about it from all around the world, I knew it was something that needed to be shared and discussed.

The Cycle Of Reincarnation & The Pre-Birth Plan

Many people feel that reincarnation cant exist because they dont remember their past and my answer to the world is we do remember. We dont have the details but we have certain key hints as to who we are. The type of music we like, the people we are most attracted to, the types of food we like, the clothing we wear, certain periods of history that we identify with. These are indications this is where we have been before and so our present incarnation or our present lifetime is a composite of all the fruits of what we were before.

An Ultimate Guide to Every B&W ISO 400 35mm Film on the Market "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Im photographer Andrew Branch, and this is my 400 speed, 35mm black-and-white film guide. In this guide, I will be comparing every 400 ISO black and white film which is actively being produced and readily available to the U.S. market, that I know about.

Before we get into it, you should know that I am a film enthusiast, but a novice in every sense of the word. Experienced film shooters will likely find my film review a bit naive and maybe insufficient. Thats fine, Im not doing this for them. Im making this guide because I havent found anything else out there that does this sort of in-depth comparison, which includes the new films released in 2017. The moment a more seasoned film expert decides to make a better one of these, I will gladly point people to her or his guide. But in the meantime, Ill do the best I can and appreciate would patience from those who are more experienced.

Table of Contents

1. Methodology (2:38 in the video)
2. Film Histories and Characteristics (5:34)
3. Blind Test (17:57)
4. Analysis and Conclusions (41:14)

You should also know that this will not be a short guide. Well proceed like this. Ill first explain how I conducted the testing for this guide, as transparently as possible. Next, Im going to talk about the history and characteristics of each one of these emulsions. If youre going to skip a section, this might be a good candidate, although, some may find this fascinating. After that, well get to the most important section, and that is the blind testing to help you and I figure out what type of film we find most appealing. Finally, Ill give you my own analysis, for those who are interested.

Now, you should know that the way any of these films look, both grain, contrast, sharpness, tonality, etc can all be drastically affected by your choice of developer, your development technique, and your scanning technique. The good news there is that, within reason, you can probably make most any film, developer, scanning, and post processing combination get you results youre very pleased with if you experiment long enough. And any experienced film photographer would tell you that thats exactly what you should do.

Column: Of Stryper and Viking Fidget Spinners "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Back in high school in the late 1980s, my friend Dan really liked the band Stryper. He cut the sleeves off his jean jacket, drew the bands logo in Elmers glue on the back, then threw gold and black glitter at it to make the only Stryper vest any of us had ever seen. We teased him mercilessly.

Why? Because Stryper was a totally cheesy Christian glam metal band from Orange County that sang about Jesus while wearing mascara and yellow spandex, and that seemed the most un-metal thing possible to a bunch of teenage hippies and metal-heads in 1986. The band sold t-shirts that read 777, To Hell with the Devil and sang lyrics like this:

Oh, what did you say?
Oh, Christ is the way!
Rockin for the One who is the Rock!

I feel His strength come into me!
Reading His word helps me to see!
I feel so new, I want to sing!
Feeling His joy in everything!

The record featuring these catchy lyrics was the first Christian metal album to go platinum. This was exactly the kind of fervently faithful (and unintentionally homoerotic) corporate Christian rock that South Park would later mercilessly lampoon in their Christian Rock Hard episode.

Mascara and Roman collars: the back cover of Strypers To Hell with the Devil LP (1986)

Three decades after Dan made his Stryper vest, I found myself wearing commercially-produced Amon Amarth t-shirts with pictures of Odin on the front and odes to the Norse god on the back. Amon Amarth is a totally bad-ass melodic death metal band from Sweden that sings about Odin while wearing Thors hammers and Viking beards, and that is the most metal thing possible to a bunch of middle-aged dad-rockers in 2016. The band sells t-shirts that read Thunder God, Master of War and sings lyrics like this:

Fire! Burning in his eyes!
Fire! His hate is pure, see the lightning strike!

Lightning cracks the blackened sky!
Hear the thunder chariot ride!
All brave men with hearts of war!
Ride the path of mighty Thor!

I also ordered an extra cylinder (bottom right of the photo above) and a Powder Flask (not pictured).

The original Model 1851 Navy Colt single-action revolver was as much a part of the Western trail as the Americans who traveled it. Wild Bill Hickok carried a pair with ivory grips during his lawman days in Abilene. This same pistol Wild Bill Hickok used in his famous duel with Davis Tutt, to make a kill-shot from a distance of 75 yards away.

Change, especially a collapse scenario, often happens quite fast. So fast that theres little to no time to react in the short frenzy between before and after.

This is true throughout nature. Glaciers that took millennia to form calve off into the sea in a matter of moments. Old-growth forests filled with thousand-year-old trees can be decimated by a single wildfire. The bubonic plague Black Death pandemic of the Middle Ages killed one-third of the Earths human population within just four short years.

Fast change is also a hallmark of human society. Movements and ideas oftentimes simmering for years, decades or longer suddenly reach a critical state in which the populace is swept up into history-making action. The outbreak of World War I. The Civil Rights movement. The dissolution of the USSR. The Digital Age.

When it comes, change happens swiftly. And life after for better or worse is forever different.

A good example of this was the disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in March of 2011.

Sugardine, a Great Homemade Antiseptic "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

sugardineFor thousands of years people have survived without the use of antibiotics.  Many early treatments for infected wounds involved honey. Both the Smith Papyrus of 1700 B.C. and the Ebers Papyrus of 1500 B.C. describe the treatment of severe wounds and burns with coagulated milk and honey held in place by a muslin bandage.  Later granulated sugar was used to treat sores in both horse and humans.  Today a mixture known as sugardine in widely used to treat sores and wounds on horses.  It has proved to be effective and is inexpensive.

Sugar by itself has been used and shown to be effective in the  treatment for infected wounds.

sugardineBut sugardine, a mixture of iodine and sugar has proved to be more effective.  The American Farriers Journal Special Management Report #1Using Sugar To Treat Those Nasty Wounds stated the following.  One study was done over a 5-year period in which 605 human patients were treated exclusively with sugardine. In nearly all cases, these patients (whose injuries included ulcers, cat scratches and gunshot wounds) healed more rapidly with sugardine than any alternative method of treatment.  This is a link to information on the study.

You can purchase various sugardine mixtures at many places that sell medications for horses and other animals or you make it yourself.

Ingredients for sugardine.

  • Table Sugar
  • 10% povidone iodine (or the more expensive but easier to find betadine)

Procedure:

  1. Mix one part 10% povidone iodine to two parts white sugar.

Add more or less sugar to make it the consistency of thick honey or peanut butter.

Put the sugardine in a container with a tight fitting lid.  The mixture will need stirring now and then but it will never go bad.

It is my understanding that with a large open wound you pack it with sugardine and then bandage it.  Please understand that I am not a Doctor and have had no specialized medical training.  Any su...

Photographer Turns Sick and Disabled Kids into Justice League Superheroes "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Photographer Josh Rossi spent $1,500 last year turning his 3-year-old daughter into Wonder Woman, and the photo series went viral. This year, he did another passion project for a great cause: he photographed kids with diseases and disabilities as Justice League superheroes.

The whole idea was to take the things that are weaknesses for the kids such as cancer and other diseases and turn them into strengths, Rossi tells PetaPixel. I worked with 6 kids under the age of 8 and completed a movie poster style image for each of them.

The custom replica costumes created for each of the kids were valued at over $10,000, but each one was donated for this good cause. Once the photos were planned, shot, and edited, Rossi created giant framed prints and surprised each child on camera.

It was amazing seeing the excitement on their faces! Rossi says. Here are each of the kids, their superhero portraits, and the video of them receiving the print:

Kayden is a 5-year-old who was born with omphalocele, which caused his internal organs to grow outside his navel. To save his life, doctors had to amputate both of his legs.

Street Art Camp for Girls Helps Shift the Gender Imbalance One Spray Can at a Time "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Girl Mobb - Graffiti Workshops for Girls

One artist is making concrete strides in breaking up the boys club that exists in the art worldspecifically graffiti art. Nina Wright, who works under the name Girl Mobb, grew up in rural Ohio, where she started out painting barns, but it wasn't until she moved to Oakland, California that she found her place among other graffiti artists. Still, she was the only woman in her crew.

After receiving an invitation for yet another all-female art exhibition, Girl Mobb was inspired to take matters into her own hands and mentor young girls looking to get into the graffiti game. And that's when Graffiti Camp for Girls was born. Noticing that there were several workshops that taught interested artists how to use aerosol paint, but nothing specifically for girls, Girl Mobb started her classes in April thanks to a Southern Exposure Grant.

Over the course of a week the participants, who range in age from 12 to 17, learn the basics of using spray paint and then work together to collaboratively conceive of, and paint, their own mural. The sessions have already been a hit, with girls flying in from across the country to participate and Girl Mobb being asked to bring the lessons to other cities.

One step at a time she's slowing building a larger network of female artists, who can hopefully serve as inspiration for other budding artists. That's what this is all about for me, she says, finally I'm hanging out with my female peers and getting to make some more little female destroyers.

Bursts of Endorphins Are Released With This One Type of Exercise "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

By Joe Battaglia

Researchers in Finland have found that when youre working out, the level of endorphins released in the brain directly correlates to the intensity of exercise youre doing. Thats a good thing for people doing high-intensity interval training, or HIIT, because HIIT can be miserable.

The results were published in Neuropsychopharmacology.

Scientists believe exercise-induced endorphin release may in part be the bodys way of motivating a person to power through activities that are no fun, but good for you. The new study, conducted at the University of Turku, shows that the popular (but miserable) high-intensity interval training leads to a burst of endorphins released into the brain, which the researchers speculate alleviates some of the physical and emotional stress caused by the awful, high-intensity exercise. A lower-tempo, less demanding, traditional and entirely reasonable one-hour aerobic routine, sadly, has no similar effect.

What Is HIIT?

HIIT is usually 30-60 minutes long. It switches between high-intensity exercises to small active breaks. By making the body work hard, rest for a small amount of time,...

Pitchfork Music Critic Calls His Tinnitus Moody and Experimental but Tedious "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

CHICAGO Pitchfork critic Thomas Coates penned a thorough-yet-harsh critique of his ever-encroaching tinnitus last week, ultimately giving his affliction a mixed review.

The 24 year-old journalist initially seemed to appreciate the avant-garde qualities of his hearing loss.

The ceaseless hisses, clicks, and pops roaring throughout my ear canals are reminiscent of earlier Eno works, Coates wrote in the lengthy review. Thematically, my decreasing hearing functions reminds us all of the fragility of life.

Those close to Coates confirmed he first experienced his tinnitus after attending a three-day music festival, at which he stood directly in front of an amplifier with no ear protection.

When he laid down that night, he said he thought a neighbor was playing an unreleased Radiohead track, and that he could feel it reverberating throughout his skull, said longtime partner Gloria Roberts. I dont think he realized how serious this actually is, and that the damage is irreversible.

Coates began the review after two weeks of focusing solely on the noise contained within his head.

Related:

When I realized this dark, introspective lullaby was actually something physiologically wrong with me, it made it all the more appealing, Coates said. However, as the monotonous tinny track refused to cease, it grew tiresome, as the voices of my friends and family faded into the background.

Otolaryngologist Dr. Walter Bohlke cited the critics profession as the inspiration for the ceaseless musical onslaught.

He wears headphones during his commute, then all day at work, and then attends concerts at night. Honestly, hes lucky his entire existence hasnt devolved into a sub-par Lou Reed album, said Bohlke. His review did help me understand the scope of his tinnitus, but I still think it was a bit long-winded.

Coates ultimately rated the anatomical effects of his tinnitus at a meager 6.5.

Arkansas: Update on effort to end fluoridation mandate "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Excerpt from article that covers several issues:

The OMRPWA [Ozark Mountain Regional Public Water Authority], our water provider, has been working along with others to get the requirement to add fluoride removed from Arkansas law due to the health concerns and the added cost. Two water districts in Arkansas have refused to fluoridate, and are involved in lawsuits with the Arkansas Department of Health. The Ozark Mountain Regional Public Water Authority and the Madison County Regional Water District have opposed fluoridation based on concerns not just about human health effects, but that fluoridation chemicals are so corrosive they can reduce the life of the water delivery system by 40 percent while increasing lead leaching from old pipes. Unfortunately, opponents of Arkansas water fluoridation failed to remove the state mandate and must now wait another two years until the legislature is in session. There is some hope, though. A lawsuit was recently filed in federal court in California by the Fluoride Action Network (FAN) and other groups to get fluoride out of drinking water all across the country.

Google Will Help Diagnose Your Clinical Depression: Its Wonderful "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Google has decided its not doing enough to lead us into a better world. So now its going to enter the field of psychiatry.

Engadget.com: Google is offering a medically validated, anonymous screening questionnaire for clinical depression if you search for information on the condition. This wont definitively indicate that youre clinically depressed, to be clear, but it will give you useful information you can take to a doctor.

Artists Giant Pencil Drawings Blur the Line Between Hyperrealism and Surrealism "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Hyperrealism Art by Jono Dry

Self-taught artist Jono Dry brings his imagination to life with a pencil and paper. In his awe-inspiring hyperrealism drawing style, the South African creative fuses an incredible attention to detail with a surrealist point of viewmaking his work both technically stunning as well as conceptually compelling.

Drys photograph-like artwork showcases often-overlooked characteristics like the delicate folds of the skin and the glisten on a single water drop. He leaves nothing out, although his drawings are often devoid of a background. This gives them a dramatic, almost theatrical feel, and this lack of context allows us to impart our own opinions about what the work means.

This idea of freedom is at the forefront of how Dry thinks about his drawings. In an interview with ArtBookGuy he explained, I enjoy the idea of having no limit with my work. When the only limit is your imagination, it becomes a wonderful challenge to see how far it can stretch, Continuing, It feels like I'm constantly exploring and pushing the boundaries of my own imagination with the goal to find something worth spending time, bringing to life in the form of a drawing.

For Optimal Health, Mind Your Oral Microbiome and Avoid Fluoride, Harsh Mouth Rinses and Amalgam Fillings "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Story at-a-glance

  • Thousands of studies have linked oral disease to systemic disease, including Alzheimers, stroke, heart disease and diabetes
  • To optimize your oral microbiome, stop using antibacterial mouth rinses. Also avoid fluoride-containing toothpaste and fluoridated water
  • Mercury is another dental-related substance that can wreak havoc with your health. About 50 percent of the amalgam filling is mercury, a neurotoxin and persistent environmental toxin

While often overlooked, your dental health can have a significant impact on your overall health. Its difficult to achieve high-level physical health if your oral health is ignored. Dr.Gerry Curatola, founder of Rejuvenation Dentistry, has over 30 years experience in biological dentistry. As Curatola notes, your mouth is your gateway to total body wellness. Indeed, thousands of studies have linked oral disease to systemic disease.

Inflammation is known to be a disease-causing force leading to most chronic illness, and gum disease and other oral diseases produce chronic low-grade inflammation that can have a deleterious effect on every major organ system in your body.

Oral disease can therefore contribute to diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and Alzheimers, just to name a few. Advanced gum disease can raise your risk of a fatal heart attack up to 10 times. And, according to Curatola, if you get a heart attack related to gum disease, 9 times out of 10 it will be fatal.

Theres also a 700 percent higher incidence of type 2 diabetes among those with gum disease, courtesy of the inflammatory effects of unbalanced microflora in your mouth.

Caring for Your Oral Microbiome

When the bacteria that cause tooth decay and gum disease enter into your circulatory system it causes your liver to release C-reactive proteins, which have inflammatory effects on your entire circulatory system. So a major part of oral health is attending to your oral microbiome.

Meadville. LETTER: Water authority does not want to hear from fluoride opponents "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

After the city council meeting, the city solicitor stated to me as I was leaving that, The difference in Johnstown and Meadville is that in Johnstown the water authority is owned by the city. This should be explained openly to the public.

As for council continually stating that, We should go to water authority meetings, it is quite clear that the water authority does not want to hear from anyone who is against fluoridating Meadvilles water. Dr. Christopher Knapp, a very credible speaker on the fluoridation issue, was treated very rudely at the Aug. 16 meeting. Watch re-runs of the meeting on Armstrong Cable, channel 23.

The water authority has heard several times at public meetings many speaking against fluoridation, myself included. The Meadville Area Water Authority only wants to hear from those favoring fluoridation, a small number of special interests in this community who are controlling this situation. As has been said in the past, something is rotten in Denmark, and I think we all now what that means.

The exception as far as the water board goes is Hal Tubbs, very credible in his comments and motion (not seconded) to hear from MAWAs customers. Meadville, West Mead and Vernon citizens must become informed and stand up against this effort to fluoridate their public water whether by the water authority polling customers, making sure we are heard or by investigation.

This mouth blusters and brags.

This mouth promises to pay the builders of its empire; then refuses, counter-sues, and laughs.

Mexico: Displeasure at Ecocidal Capitalist Extractive Model Inspires Forum "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

by Rafael Sevilla / REMA

translated by Earth First! Journal

National Gathering Against the Extractivist Mining Model; October 7-8, in Malinaltepec, Guerrero, Mexico

A resilient movement runs through different geographies of Mexico, from the Tehuantepec Isthmus to Huasteca Veracruz; communities and towns are mobilizing in dislocated actions to manifest their displeasure against the capitalist extractive model, where the spoils are fused with ecocide.

After two days of reflection and analysis, [people in various towns] integrated in different organizational spaces to expose a total rejection of the extractive model that is reaching its worst expression with the imposition of the so-called Special Economic Zones, which represent the sites for megaprojects like mining, wind power, gas pipelines, dams, maquiladoras or REDD mechanisms that threaten all life. These will only maximize the already proven damages to the environment, health, society, economy, and culture that this type of project generates and which directly affect the lives of the original peoples who live in the territories they are trying to exploit.

The organizations integrated [see original article for full list] represent a sustained effort to support a strategy that has been found in the Mexican Network of Those Affected by Mining (REMA) and the Mexican Movement against the Dams and Defense of the Rivers, (MPDER), referring to organizational resistance, whose priorities are inscribed in the mobilization, in the countercurrent information of the mass media, in the care Of the land and its natural assets, in hundreds of training workshops on human rights, health and Social and environmental legal identity even within the legal framework already so adverse Everything,...

A Participatory Studio of Utopic Creativity "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Installation view of All You Can Art 2 (2017), Kunsthal Rotterdam (photo by Marco De Swart)

In 2006, the artists David Bade and Tirzo Martha co-founded the Instituto Buena Bista on their native Curaao. Housed on the grounds of the Capriles psychiatric clinic, the institute offers holistic arts education for young adults, residencies for visiting artists, art workshops for local seniors, as well as studio space for the clinics patients. All of these initiatives are collaborative in nature; artists and participants produce work together as part of a curriculum that has been tailored to each partys interests and needs. While Bade and Martha both maintain studio practices, exhibiting their artworks internationally, IBB itself can be seen as their most ambitious and acclaimed work of art. It is a Fluxus-inspired cultural laboratory a Beuysian social sculpture whose integrity and hard-earned successes provide an all-too-rare glimpse of utopic creativity in action.

For the second of three consecutive summers, Bade and Martha installed an outpost of IBB at the Kunsthal Rotterdam under the name All You Can Art 2. The popular show, which makes great use of the Kunsthals high-ceilinged and glass-walled exhibition space and loft-like floorplan, imports IBBs participatory spirit and progressive educational structure into a gallery setting. An exhibition and open studio, it includes historical overviews of IBB, exhibition spaces, stations for visitors to make their own art, workspaces for IBB students, and the unenclosed studios of Bade, Martha, and former IBB artists-in-residence Liesbeth Labeur and Rieneke de Vries (in which visitors are invited to participate). Packed wall-to-wall with art and art supplies, All You Can Art 2 evokes the carnivalesque atmosphere of an elementary school art fair only here you dont have be the proud parent of a child in the show to find the work compelling.

30 Hummingbirds Gather in Bird Bath for a Mini Pool Party Ritual "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Humingbird Bird Bath, Hummingbird Bath

Humans arent the only ones that get to enjoy pool parties. Bird baths also encourage these sorts of enthusiastic gatheringssplashing and all. Backyard nature store Wild Wings, which specializes in fountains and feed, captured this delightful video of a massive hummingbird bath. In less than a minute of footage, it shows 30 of the winged creatures enjoying the refreshing cool of bubbling water.

As hummingbirds flutter into the scene, each has their own particular bathing style. Many choose to stay and relax in one place, while others have a more hyperactive personality. These high-strung birds take a quick dip and then, just as fast, are out of the water again. Because the video is so short, its worth watching a few times to observe how each of the individual hummingbirds interact with the poolits fascinating.

While its not unusual to see one or two birds in a bath at a time, Wild Wings notes this particular sight is an anomaly; hummingbirds can be territorial, and the tranquility seen here doesnt last. They write, Youd never know they will be harassing each other in five minutes time.

Wild Wings has this special hummingbird bird bath for sale, and it's designed to suit the specific tastes of the species. If you're interested in creating your own avian pool party, let Wild Wings know via their website.

Hummingbirds can have pool parties, too! This hummingbird bird bath was recently host to 30 of the winged creatures:

Abduction "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

No sleep for four days straight, we reached out for help. My jubilant experiences of revelation were now beginning to turn fearful. I was detached and suffering from exhaustion. My husband and I were planning to take a ride through the woods and go to the counseling services at noon. It was still quite early. My aunt arrived at the doorstep, called in to help by my father. She assisted with the laundry and offered to take me to the clinic so my husband could stay with the kids.

While on the way to the clinic, my vision was fading in and out to white. The car felt like a flying machine as the houses zoomed past us. My senses were overwhelmed. In the car there was a phone call, I heard my aunt say, Something isnt right, and we turned around, heading back to my house.

To our surprise, the assessment interviewer arrived with two police officers and a clipboard. Our children were very small, the youngest three months old. My husband wanted to witness the interview but had to watch over the children in the other room at the same time. I was alone with the three scrutinizers, asleep sitting up for the interview, nodding in and out. To my recollection I was unable to utter anything verbally. Somehow during the interview this woman wrote down on her clipboard enough to condemn me to a traumatic abduction. I was calm, I had no intention of harming myself or others, and I was compliant. Yet they removed my rights, told my husband he wasnt allowed to take me to the hospital, that they were rushing me to the ER. I went to hug my children goodbye. I only got to my oldest son and they tore him from my arms and began to drag me from the house. Once outside they threw me in the back of a cop car in front of all the neighbors. I was being treated like a criminal publicly.

In the back of the car, I had an intense panic attack. The fear was immeasurable. I could feel my mind and body shutting down. The smell of gasoline flooded the car. Breathing became increasingly difficult. My vision began to fade in and out again, and I was seeing a spiral in my minds eye. The police officers ignored my distress and did their duty unfazed. I desperately tried to convince them to turn around once I saw the ramp to the ER.

Inside the ER I was strapped to a gurney and shot with three large vials of Ativan in the thigh. At first I blacked out and could see nothing, but oddly spoke in binary code, One, zero, negative one, zero, one My mind was trying to balance itself and stop the trauma from unfolding. When my awareness of my environment focused I was both calm and wired from the drugs. It enabled me to talk when the ob-gyn came to interview me. I spoke in circles of past guilt, compounded trauma and worries, revealing accounts of self harm from my early twenties, unfounded fears for the lives of myself and my family and the current state of the world. This unraveling of emo...

In Defense of the Guaran Aquifer vs. Petrel Energy Company "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

from 350.org

translated by Earth First! Journal

This is the second largest potable water reserve on the planet, which supplies about 55 million people in the four countries where it is located Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay.

Various organizations and movements of Latin American civil society gathered last Saturday (12) in the city of Salto, Uruguay, for the First Regional Forum in Defense of the Guaran Aquifer and the XVII Regional Forum against Fracking. Organized by the Salto Civil Environmental Association Salteos in Defense of Natural Property along with 350.org Latin America and COUSUS Latinoamericana against Fracking, the meeting aimed to draw up joint strategies for the protection of one of the most precious natural resources of the Continent and the world: the waters of the Guaran Aquifer.

[] At the end of the day, a document [READ COMPLETE LETTER BELOW] was drafted jointly by all organizations present on the oil drilling that threatens the Guaran Aquifer. In the last week, the Uruguayan government announced the decision to support a moratorium on fracking in the country for four years. But that is not a solution, because that possibility holds latent and, as long as Uruguay does not have a rule that prohibits it, the oil comp...

Menominee Tribe Requests Government to Government Consultation with the EPA and Army Corps on the Back Forty Mine Project "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Published August 26, 2017

KESHENA, WISCONSIN In  continuation to fight the proposed Back 40 Forty Mine project, the Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin is exercising its sovereign rights by formally requesting government to government consultation with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) on the wetland permit required under the Clean Water Act. As part of the consultation the Tribe is requesting the EPA and USACE to make a specific jurisdictional determination for the Menominee River, in Michigans Upper Penisular, before moving forward with any wetland permit for the project

The Tribe is aware that the Clean Water Act prohibits the United States from delegating wetland permitting authority to the State of Michigan in regard to certain waters of the United States. We believe there is sufficient evidence to demonstrate the waters at issue in the proposed Back 40 mine project are waters that cannot be delegated to the State of Michigan. In non-delegable waters, the proper permitting authority for the wetland permit is the US Army Corps, not Michigan stated Menominee Tribal Chairman Gary Besaw.

Aquila Resources, Inc., a Canadian development stage company, has been granted three of the four permits required for the project. The companys efforts to obtain the fourth and most difficult permit, a wetland permit, have been unsuccessful to date. Aquilas was forced to withdraw their first wetland permit application in 2016 and their second application submitted...

Rappers Rap Big Statements: Tyler the Creator, Vince Staples, Playboi Carti, Logic "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

In 2017 rap is less a genre than a concatenation of subgenres, each with a different set of conventions and rules. There is no central sound (although Kendrick Lamars Loyalty, an exercise in self-conscious conventionality, may come close); just listen to the radio and discover as wide a range of modes as youd like. Each of the four albums reviewed below inhabits its own idiosyncratic sonic universe. And three of them respond more intelligently to the political situation than Arcade Fire.

Tyler, the Creator: Flower Boy (Columbia)

What a heartening development for a formerly horrorcore rapper: coming out (ambiguously) as gay, implicitly denouncing his vulgar, often bigoted previous work, and recording a sweet ode to vulnerability and unrequited love. While indeed a simplistic, one-dimensional corrective move, the album charms for its lovely, warm tranquility.

One could write essays, dissertations, books on the hormonal confusion, internalized self-hate, obsession with masculine codes, and unbearable adolescent agony inherent in Tylers career arc, all resolved and clarified in light of recent admissions about his sexuality. The albums coolest breakthrough, though, is musical. Once he growled over crude, ugly synthbeats whose simplicity implied both authenticity and lethargy. Now behold waves of pealing keyboard ripples, noodling trebly guitar, sweeping electronic strings, organic grooves inhabiting a soft-rock variant on neosoul, and a panoply of chirpy female R&B voices, most prominently Estelle and Kali Uchis, whispering sweet nothings and providing vocal cushioning. Like the Internets Ego Death, this music glows with soothingly balmy heat, almost pastoral in its evocation of an endless, directionless summer. The albums power as a gesture depends on an audiences knowledge of Tylers past music and willingness to undergo a transformation of self; he cares more about sweetness as a corrective token than sweetness as an aesthetic attribute. Garden Shed, whose synthesizer rays and piercing lead guitar pass like a shimmery breeze, and See You Again, whose dizzy, bittersweet harmonies comfort with the slightest hint of disquiet, would delight in any case.

The album is too transparent a swerve, too concerned with...

sewing: rayon sointu kimono top "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

This post is written by Lindsay of @lindsayinstitches

Hi Imagine Gnats readers! Im Lindsay, a new contributor here on the Imagine Gnats blog. Im so excited to be working with my favorite fabric shop and among such an amazing group of sewists. Im super excited to share this rayon sointu kimono top with you today.

Okay, so lets be real, rayon can be a little intimidating. Its flowy, flattering and beautiful, but its also kind of shifty and unstable. Now if I were your therapist, I would probably tell you to steer clear of something that met that description.

The good news is that Im a nurse not a therapist, and as it goes for most fabric purchases, Im an incredible enabler! Sure, it takes some extra care to work with, but the drape and hand of this fiber just cant be beat. Id encourage you to give it a try, even if youre a little nervous.

Im still perfecting my skill in using this type of fabric, but I really believe you get better with every garment you make.

Im so happy some of my favorite manufacturers, like Art Gallery, are now producing the substrate. This is my second garment made using AGF rayon. Like their quilting cottons and knits, I find it to have that characteristic buttery feel. Yummmmm.

When I first saw this fabric in the shop, I couldnt stop picturing it as a kimono. The only kimono patterns I knew of were all open front styles but that wasnt what I was envisioning. I found the Sointu Kimono Tee from Named Patterns on a google search.

I initially thought it was a no-go, since it calls for knit fabrics. However, after reviewing the finished garment measurements, I felt pretty confident I could make it work with a non-stretch fabric.

You guys, Im so....

German Government Shuts Down Indymedia: What It Means "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

by CrimethInc. Ex-Workers Collective / Its Going Down

If it succeeds, it could easily be used against other platforms, magazines, and projects, so that everyone spreading radical literature and ideas and documenting activism and social movements will become targets for this kind of repression and state violence.

The German government has shut down the German Indymedia site, the most widely used German-language platform for radical politics and organizing. They have also conducted raids in Freiburg to seize computers and harass those they accuse of maintaining the site, absurdly justifying this on the grounds that the alleged administrators constitute an illegal organization for the sake of destroying the German Constitution. This represents a massive escalation in state repression against what the authorities call left-wing extremism, disingenuously suggesting an equivalence between those who seek to build communities beyond the reach of state violence and Neo-Nazis organizing to carry out attacks and murders like the ones in Charlottesville last week.

15 Self Care Questions to Ask Yourself When Feeling Low "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

by Tanaaz; Forever Conscious

We all go through periods in our lives where we feel low, extra sensitive or energetically drained. This is a normal phase which often occurs after a serious life change or upheaval.

When you are in this state, it is important to honor yourself and treat yourself with loving kindness, but most of us are not so good with this, or find it difficult to know where to begin.

When it comes to the big picture things, most of us are pretty good at taking care of ourselves. We put a roof over our heads and we buy clothes and food when we need to, but often it is the smaller picture stuff that goes by unnoticed.


Overtime, neglecting these smaller picture items can prolong any low feelings and can also lead to feelings of exhaustion and depletion. Forgetting the smaller picture stuff can also cause you to lose motivation and can give way to negative self talk and self-limiting beliefs.

Checking in with yourself on a daily basis and caring for your mind, body and spirit is so important and this is especially true when you have been through a period of change, transformation or upheaval.

6 Strange Signs Your Soul Reincarnated From A Past Life "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

by Katherine Marko; The Alternative Daily

Have you ever looked into the eyes of a stranger and felt an instant connection? Have you ever wondered why youre claustrophobic, or have a fear of heights? The answer could stem from a past life. In fact, its commonly believed that many of our personal characteristics, experiences and even skills are closely linked to another life lived on earth. But how do you know for sure that your soul has reincarnated from a past life? These six signs may prove you likely have.

Lessons behind reincarnation

Reincarnation is the belief that when you die, your soul moves into a new body. Some believe this is an absolute truth, others are skeptical. However, according to psychotherapist Dr. Brian L. Weiss, author Many Lives Many Masters and Chairman Emeritus of Psychiatry at the Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami, everyone reincarnates.


I think everybody reincarnates because we have many lessons to learn, lessons about love, compassion, charity, nonviolence, inner peace, patience, etc., suggests Dr. Weiss. It would be hard to learn them all in only one life. Also, some people come back voluntarily to help others.

Theories exist as to why reincarnation happens, but no one really knows for sure. That said, here are some of the signs that you may have reincarnated:

Self-drive lorry serial-killers launched "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Mysterious unmarked vans and lorries will be trialled throughout the UK, each carrying a robot capable of committing untraceable sex-crimes, while quoting from Smokey & the Bandit. Then with the familiar whiff of diesel and formaldehyde, the automated cyborg-driver will wrap body parts in tarpaulin and drop them in the local canal.

Street workers and homeless teenagers have spoken of their excitement at how the self-drive service will speed up their untimely and tragic demise. While ordinary drivers welcomed the opportunity to gesticulate at tailgating robot-killers, alongside the more unpalatable BMW drivers.

A Government spokesman tried to allay concerns of inevitable human redundancies: There will still be jobs available for those interested in the indiscriminate killing of the vulnerable in society for instance, we will still need Work Capability Assessors and cladding manufacturers.

Generic police photo-fits will now resemble an Apple Mac, while forensic detectives will focus on tracing killerbytes. One robot commented: Ill be able imitate the cold, psychotic tone of Hannibal Lecter while delivering over-priced goods a bit like Amazon Echo.

Beer with a Painter: Suzanne Joelson and Gary Stephan "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Suzanne Joelson Crackrakecrate (2016) paint, vinyl graphics on wood panel, 50 x50 inches (all images courtesy the artists)

Gary Stephan and Suzanne Joelson live and work together in a building in TriBeCa. Within the building they each maintain individual floors, so my suggestion of a couple interview was a bit of a radical experiment. We had to decide how and where to stage our visit. Luckily they were game, ready with Captains Daughter IPA, and an array of cheese and snacks.

Their zones are distinct: Stephan doesnt keep anything extra around leaving only some minimal, modernist furniture, a vintage rowing machine for exercise, and a fantastic rotating easel. Joelsons area is full of color, with layered collections of fabrics, textiles, and clippings in full use. Stephan says hes lucky that he can borrow supplies from Joelson when he needs them; he refuses to buy anything in advance. They use examples from domestic life to illustrate their aesthetics: Joelson apparently doesnt like closing closet doors it denotes a system of closed deductions. More than anything, Im struck by their open, inquisitive nature with each other.

This rigorous but open questioning permeates both of their practices. Joelson asks what happens when two unexpected elements or techniques bump up against one another: collaged, industrial fabrics  and the painterly, handmade gesture. Stephan refers to a formalist vocabulary, but turns any lingering obsession with the framing edge upside-down. Theres a curiosity in their work about different permutations of meeting in the middle, which is, in fact, echoed by the terms of our three-person conversation.

Stephan was born in Brooklyn in 1942, studied at Pratt Institute, and received his MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1967. He has had solo shows in New York at Susan Ing...

Star Citizen - Gamescom 2017 - pre-3.0 alpha footage is not encouraging "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"



oh dear... well, they did it, they released (at least visually demonstrated) the dying duck that is Star Citizen's pre-3.0 release.

It's full of bugs. And don't get me wrong, I've demo'd early software at E3, namely Ghostmaster from Empire Games, so I know dev's never easy. But this Gamescom demo seems loads buggier than last year's excellent demo. And it looks like there's STILL no door-based gameplay to speak of.

Planets disappear when you visit them.
Ship ramps still don't work on non-flat surfaces like planets.
Players carc i.e. die, locking out potential rescue players.

Doors still don't work... And I mentioned Star Citizen's Door Issues way back in a post from this time last year, clearly nobody at CIG or Cloud Imperium Games thinks doors are essential to such fake-sandbox gaming. My contention is 'still' that Star Citizen is ONLY a one-player game with Ai-assisted gameplay -- there's no real door-based sandbox feel to it. Not al all...

"But, what do you mean by doors, Mike," the doors work fine. Yeah, but IN A GAME OF DOORS one doesn't mean just the doors that open and close. The act of being 'in the verse', is the act of moving from door to door. Whether you're making sure a box renders in your viewport, or you're jumping a capital ship from star to star, doors is all it is.

Doors also applies to # PLAYERS ON THE SERVER, I mean, "How can you fully populate a massive inter-planetary attack ship like an Idris, if you can't have that many players in the same server?" ffs. How does a captain pass across orders using FOIP or VOIP or other direct command?

Additionally, while it's cool to see a plasma-powered jet-fighter hanging in space, it feels COMPLETELY WRONG to see the same jet fighter doing the same in atmosphere - Star Citizen promised a more flight-based dynamic in atmosphere, and I'm assuming that VTOL was your only way to land, and constant movement was the essential ingredient.

Anyway, and the lighting's broken as all hell on the new planetary tech.

Looks Like Im the Only One Brave Enough to Post Anti-Racist Memes on Ello "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

I dont like to use the word BRAVE often, but when its necessary, it must be said. Amongst an entire worldwide social network, hundreds of thousands of people sharing a space in the digital world not one other person is taking a stand against the tyranny of white supremacy. Its been awhile since the whole Charlottesville thing went down and it looks like Im the only one brave enough to post anti-racist memes on Ello.

When I kicked Facebook to the curb in 2014 I wrote a brief 14 paragraph tirade about how Mark Zuckerberg is ushering the new world of CORPORAT-OCRACY online. I was excited to join the new social media site ELLO, free from ads of evil corporations propped up from their Facebook clicks.

Remember in 2012 when everyone said umm bye bye to Instagram because the new terms of service said they would use all of your pictures to reuse however they see fit?!  This is the kinda bullshit that you dont see on Ello. In fact, I dont see much of anything on Ello. The silence is deafening. At a time like this silence equals compliance.

Every morning I wake up and post my #morningmeme against racism and nobody gives me bread! Not actual bread, its just like a like or fav but you know, on Ello.

Ello was supposed to be the anti-Facebook and anti-Instagram for open-minded revolutionaries like me, but it feels like Im posting memes in a void over here!

Im not afraid to lecture racists in my meme comment threads I just never have ANY comments. At all. People just are afraid to stand up against tyranny. Even on Ello! Unreal. Tag your Ello handle in the comments! Im #teamfollowback!

Ancient Runways and Flying Fish: Did the Nazca Culture Take Flight? "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

by Caleb Strom; Ancient Origins

The Nazca lines are still mysterious even after decades of being carefully studied. Archaeologists believe they know how they were made, but why they were made remains uncertain.

Recently, researchers have suggested that the lines were related to fertility rituals involving the availability of water, but there are some people who still see something different in lines that are very long and straight. Some alternative thinkers argue that the straighter lines represent runways for ancient airports. Although it is possible that this is the case, the evidence found to support this position is insufficient so far.

Were the Nazca Lines Airports for Ancient Aliens?

Nazca lines. Source: flyarik

The Nazca designs consist of a variety of figures. Some are recognizable as animals, such as spiders and monkeys, while others are more abstract. There is also a subset of figures that consist simply of straight lines. Some of them are built at the tops of hills and appear to stop at the edges of cliffs. Unlike the other designs that are clearly figural, these resemble runways in their length and straightness. This has led some fringe theorists to suggest that these lines were ancient air strips or airports. Some people even suggest that the lines made on hills were specifically created for launching gliders.

Sometimes Giving a Person a Choice is an Act of Terrible Cruelty "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

From Aeon: We tend to believe that giving people more choices is inherently positive. However, forcing people to choose between two morally wrong options can be exceptionally traumatic.

Sometimes, its pure bad luck that puts someone in the position of having to choose between wrongdoings. However, much of the time, choice doesnt take place in contexts that are shaped entirely accidentally. It takes place in social contexts. Social structures, policies, or institutions can produce outcomes that favour some groups of people over others in part by shaping what kinds of choices people get to or have to face. Members of some social groups might face mostly bad choices, in the sense that their choices are between alternatives, all of which are disadvantageous to them. But theres another sense in which the choices might be bad: these might be choices between alternatives, all of which make them fail in their responsibilities to others.

The American Health Care Act, which was considered in the United States House and Senate, would have created moral dilemmas by offering people without high incomes especially if they were also women, or old or sick a range of bad options. It would have forced some parents to make choices between two equally unthinkable options, such as the choice to sacrifice one childs health care for anothers. This sort of forced choice would be similar in kind to the choice that the SS officer in Sophies Choice (1982) offered, when he told Sophie: You may keep one of your children. The distinctive type of cruelty making moral failure inevitable for someone is the same.

Why We Fell for Clean Eating "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

From The Guardian: Not only is the clean eating movement based on pseudoscientific beliefs not backed up by evidence, but it may also lead to the development of eating disorders. Still, the lifestyle continues to remain popular for a variety of reasons.

Its increasingly clear that clean eating, for all its good intentions, can cause real harm, both to truth and to human beings. Over the past 18 months, McGregor says, every single client with an eating disorder who walks into my clinic doors is either following or wants to follow a clean way of eating.

In her new book, Orthorexia, McGregor observes that while eating disorders long predate the #eatclean trend, food rules (such as eating no dairy or avoiding all grains) easily become a guise for restricting food intake. Moreover, they are not even good rules, based as they are on unsubstantiated, unscientific claims. Take almond milk, which is widely touted as a superior alternative to cows milk. McGregor sees it as little better than expensive water, containing just 0.1g protein per 100ml, compared with 3.2g per 100ml in cows milk. But she often finds it very difficult to convince her clients that restricting themselves to these clean foods is in the long run worse for their health than what she calls unrestrained eating balanced and varied meals, but no panic about the odd ice cream or chocolate bar.

Clearly, not everyone who bought a clean-eating book has developed an eating disorder. But a movement whose premise is that normal food is unhealthy has now muddied the waters of healthy eating for everyone else, by planting the idea that a good diet is one founded on absolutes.

New Boyfriend Clearly Just a Palette Swap of Old Boyfriend "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

TEMPE, Ariz. ASU student Shelly Campbell has started dating local realtor Aaron Jackson two months after breaking up with longtime boyfriend Eric Johnson, who friends close to Campbell insist is just a palette swap of her ex.

Its freaky, said best friend Tanya Hayes. Aaron looks identical to Eric. He even does the same bouncing on the balls of his feet from side to side move that Eric makes when he stands still.

Study partner Naomi Reynolds was also taken aback by Jacksons uncanny resemblance to Johnson.

Literally the only thing different about him is that he wears a grey shirt instead of a blue one, Reynolds said, pointing to side by side photos of the two men. Oh and also his skin is bright red. Other than that, though, they are completely identical.

Dying Punk Begs Friend to Delete Spotify Play History "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

BUFFALO, N.Y. Darren Freed met privately with his best friend since junior high early this morning to ask him to delete thousands of songs logged in Freeds Spotify history, according to hospital officials.

Freed, who sustained life-threatening injuries after a botched stage dive, has feared his embarrassing history of music choices would bring shame and humiliation on his loved ones if made public.

I just cant do the same music 24/7, Freed said from his hospital bed. Theres a lot of stuff on that playlist that people just wouldnt understand. But Ive been listening to punk since I was 12 sometimes I need to mix it up a little and experiment. Theres a lot of stuff on that playlist I only listened to once, and once the song was over, I just felt dirty.

Hoping to delete the playlist without disgrace, Freed summoned his best friend, Ian Scarcella the only person with whom Freed shared his eclectic music preferences.

Im glad Darren trusts me enough to do this. We both have some skeletons in our closets when it comes to awful music, Scarcella said. Im not going into too much detail, but weve spent hours driving around just talking about genres beyond punk and hardcore. Were talking strange Asian shit, Disney soundtracks, period pieces, black metal, EDM even ska.

Liberal ostracised after admitting Notting Hill Carnival not really my cup of tea "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

A London man previously considered to be liberal and open-minded by his friends was facing a lifetime of isolation and shame after admitting that he wasnt all that mad about going to the Notting Hill Carnival.

Id just rather do something else, Geoffrey Harris told his liberal colleagues, Come on, Ive been for the past two years and done my best to pretend I really like all that loud music and exotic dressing up.

Mr Harris later tried to defend himself, but only got into further trouble as he attempted to claim that not liking the Notting Hill Carnival did not make him a racist. Come on, admit it, its all a bit forced and boring he told increasingly horrified friends many of whom were already deleting his number from their mobile phones. I mean which of us really likes goat curry or salt fish? And that girl doubled the prices when she saw we were middle class white guys whod had a few beers.

In an attempt to explain himself, the man then said Its just not my cup of tea, thats all; a statement seen as clearly racist and inflammatory by certain of his friends, who feel he should have chosen a less culturally exclusive beverage like Karibbean Kola.

Yesterday Mr Harriss friends were back at the Carnival without him, enthusiastically supporting the famous symbol of a multi-cultural London. Although one of them admitted it was actually very hard to see any of the floats from where they were, and the music was all a bit loud and repetitive, and so they walked through the cramped narrow streets until they found a nice pub in Kensington to watch the Olympics.

The Concept of Schizophrenia Is Coming to an End Heres Why "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The concept of schizophrenia is dying. Harried for decades by psychology, it now appears to have been fatally wounded by psychiatry, the very profession that once sustained it. Its passing will not be mourned.

Today, having a diagnosis of schizophrenia is associated with a life-expectancy reduction of nearly two decades. By some criteria, only one in seven people recover.

Despite heralded advances in treatments, staggeringly, the proportion of people who recover hasnt increased over time. Something is profoundly wrong.

Part of the problem turns out to be the concept of schizophrenia itself. Arguments that schizophrenia is a distinct disease have been fatally undermined.

Just as we now have the concept of autism spectrum disorder, psychosis (typically characterised by distressing hallucinations, delusions, and confused thoughts) is also argued to exist along a continuum and in degrees.

Schizophrenia is the severe end of a spectrum or continuum of experiences.

Jim van Os, a professor of psychiatry at Maastricht University, has argued that we cannot shift to this new way of thinking without changing our language.

As such, he proposes the term schizophrenia should be abolished. In its place, he suggests the concept of a psychosis spectrum disorder.

Another problem is that schizophrenia is portrayed as a hopeless chronic brain disease. As a result, some people given this diagnosis, and some parents, have been told cancer would have been preferable, as it would be easier to cure.

Yet this view of schizophrenia is only possible by excluding people who do have positive outcomes. For example, some who recover are effectively told that it mustnt have been schizophrenia after all.

8 of The Most Common Synchronicities That You Shouldnt Ignore "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

 

For those who are not aware, synchronicity boils down to meaningful coincidences. These coincidences defy natural explanation because of their perfect timing and how they match up so well to different parts of our lives.

This is the Universes way of letting you know you are on the right path. Below you will find a list of the most common synchronicities you should be on the look out for. Seeing these signs on more than one occasion is a wonderful experience if you know what to look for.

1. Seeing repeat numbers

Seeing repeat numbers like 1111 or 222 could be seen as the most common sign in itself. Some people even believe that each repeating number we notice is a different message from our spirit guide.

2. Randomly coming across an old friend

If it is time for someone to come back into our lives the Universe will bring them to us.

3. Meeting someone new who can help you through the challenges you are going through in life

The Universe will help you with what you are dealing with when you are on the right path. This can sometimes come in the form of actual human beings.

4. Receiving a gift randomly that you have been wanting

You have been wanting something, but chose not to mention it to anyone. Then suddenly a friend tells you they have a gift for you, and it just happens to be the prize that you have been eyeing up for month. They might even say something like I saw this and thought of you.

 

5. Good timing

You seem to be having the most perfect timing all of a sudden, and you have never been one to be on time. Everything in your life just seems to be happening in exactly the right order.

6. You come to realize answers to things you have been wondering about over time

For instance, something has been stressing you, and then out of nowhere, the answer presents itself as if you had known it all along.

7. Thinking of someone and then receiving a call from them

This is one of the most common synchronicities. You may be thinking of someone and then out of nowher...

It Is Literally Raining Diamonds On Neptune "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

For the first time, lab experiments have provided strong evidence for the existence of diamond rain in the interior of ice giant planets Uranus and Neptune. The diamond rain was generated in a lab.

In an experiment performed at the Linac Coherent Light Source, researchers used high temperatures and high pressure to mimic the conditions of Uranus and Neptune, which simulated the formation of diamond rain.

Carbon and hydrogen are thought to compress under extreme pressure and heat thousands of miles below the surfaces of Uranus and Neptune, forming diamonds.

The research suggesting this goes back about 30 years. It was theorized that the diamonds would sink through the layers of the ice giants, creating diamond rain that eventually settles around the cores of the planets.

According to Space:

Researchers simulated the interior of ice giants by creating shock waves in polystyrene (a kind of plastic) with an intense laser at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory in Menlo Park, California. The polystyrene simulated molecules known as hydrocarbons that are derived from methane, the compound that gives Neptune its blue tint. These hydrocarbons are what diamonds are thought to form from in the high pressures and temperatures in the intermediate layers of ice giants.

Scientists generated pairs of shock waves with a laser, with the first of each pair being overtaken by its stronger counterpart. When the 2 waves overlapped, diamonds actually formed with pressure about 1.48 million times greater than Earths atmospheric pressure at sea level, with the temperature of about 8,540 degrees Fahrenheit (4,725 degrees Celsius).

The experiments are said to resemble the enviro...

9 Mindful Habits That Will Benefit You for a Lifetime "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Mindfulness is the state of being conscious or aware of where we are and what we are doing, while not being overly reactive or overwhelmed to the things going on around us.

This is not as hard as the definition may make it seem. Practicing mindfulness is something we all can and should do. Below you will find a list of the 9 habits that will help you practice mindfulness. Some will seem to be challenging at first, but if you keep at it they will become simple and effective.

1. Take Mindful Showers

The next time you shower really relax and pay attention to the water as it falls. Allow yourself to appreciate all that the warm water is offering you, and really work towards a deep understanding.

2. Listen

Listen to whatever other people have to say without judgement. The more you listen to others the better understanding you will have.

3. Breathe Deeply

Deep breaths increase our awareness and allow us to calm our minds. It is important to remember not to rush things, you have to allow your body to breathe at its own pace.

4. Pay Attention to Nature

Appreciate all of the things that nature has to offer; breathe in all the smells and feel the earth under your feet. Do not think with your mind, but feel with your soul.

5. Practice Gratitude

Do not take anything this life has given you for granted. Take the time every single day to think over all of the things in life that you are grateful for.

6. Meditate

Even if it is just for twenty minutes a day, be alone with your thoughts, and free your mind of any negative energy.

7. Do Good Things

Make sure that you are helping others even if you are only able to do it in small ways. I love to volunteer some of my free time at soup kitchens and animal shelters. It is the small things that count, and believe me it will fill your heart with more love than you could have ever imagined.

8. Practice Mindful Eating

Experience your whole meal in a mindful manner. Take it all in, the taste, sound, smell...

HENRY IS LOOKING FORWARD TO THE CHALLENGE OF GOING TO WAR WITH HAYNE AT REP LEVEL

Sacked Gold Coast Titans coach Neil Henry has been appointed to the role of NSW Origin coach in a move sending shockwaves across the NSW rugby league community.

The left-field decision to throw Henry a lifeline was made by NSWRL who told the media they were looking for someone who held similar opinions on the game.

Well Neil and the NSWRL both really hate Jarryd Hayne basically, Chairman Colin Love said.

We are very much looking forward to hearing all of the bad things Neil Henry has to say about Hayne it will be nice to compare notes on the issue.

Jarryd Hayne was not available for comment on the appointment but sources close to the Titans powerbroker are suggesting he is already looking into ways he can have Henry removed as coach.

Johnny Cash vs. the Klan | Georgia Straight Vancouver's News & Entertainment Weekly "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Johnny Cash vs. the Klan | Georgia Straight Vancouver's News & Entertainment Weekly: So it wasnt much of a surprise when footage of the far-right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, on August 12 showed one cretin ignorant enough to show up wearing a Johnny Cash T-shirt. Hed likely assumed that Cash, an Arkansas-born country-music star whose career began back in the days of segregation, represented some sort of kindred spirit.

But if thats what he was thinking (and he almost certainly wasracists are notoriously fussy about rally wear), he was wrong. Holy shit, was he wrong.

An August 16 Facebook post, written by Cashs children to call out this distorted human, was among the most forceful condemnations of the horrors in Charlottesville, at a time when the U.S. president was fine with dismissing it all as a regrettable scuffle between law-abiding history buffs and the alt-left thug-elites who hate them.

WWI: A People's History of the First Global Imperialist War | Multimedia | teleSUR English "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

WWI: A People's History of the First Global Imperialist War | Multimedia | teleSUR English: While the First World War is often depicted as a primarily European war, the conflict was truly global in scope, exacting a high price tag not only on combatants and working-class civilians in Europe and North America but on colonized and oppressed peoples throughout Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. The war can accurately be described as the first global conflict where the belligerents were, by and large, capitalist powers fighting for purely economic interests.

Breaking out in 1914, the war was rooted in the competition of major corporations and national industries for new sources of raw materials and the attempts to re-carve the global geopolitical balance in their favor. While each of the major states cynically claimed to fight for "freedom and civilization" or, in the case of the Allies, the need to confront "German militarism" all of the powers sought to gain the upper-hand on one another in terms of economic advantage, seized colonies, and the subjugation of native populations.

However, the war resulted in a loss of nearly 40 million lives and the destruction of several major population centers, making it the bloodiest war Europe had ever seen up to that point. By 1918, several monarchies and empires had collapsed among them those of Germany, Russia, Austria-Hungary, and the Ottoman Empire. The lasting effects of the war resulted in socialist and anti-colonial revolutions in poor regions across the globe, with the tip of the spear provided by the October 1917 Socialist Revolution in Russia which ushered in the creation of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, or USSR.

The period following World War I was marked by numerous conflicts, truces, revolutions, intractable feuds and aspirations toward regional hegemony and global empire, which ultimately resulted in the Second World War.

teleSUR takes a look at the lesser-explored aspect of WWI the colonized troops, the civilian victims, and the revolutionaries those who fought for their own freedom rather than for the profits of industrialists and the rich who benefited from the so-called "Great War."

The ruling stems from an initial lawsuit brought by Latino residents of Maricopa who successfully challenged Arpaios policies of racial profiling and illegal detentions. The plaintiff class was represented by the American Civil Liberties Union and partner organizations. Arpaio repeatedly flouted court orders in that civil rights case, leading to both civil and criminal contempt rulings against him.

Why Do Onions Make Us Cry? "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

By Dr. Mercola

If you plan on making a salad, some kind of soup or a savory stir-fry, onions will most likely be part of the equation. You might also slice them into rings to place on sandwiches, or saut them gently in coconut oil or grass fed butter until they're soft, translucent and absolutely delicious. But something else may be likely as well: When you're cutting or chopping them, before you get very far into the first onion, you're very likely to find your nose twitching and tears making your eyes smart.

Medical News Today suggests onions make your eyes spring a leak when you cut into them (or, to a lesser degree, other potent-smelling members of the allium family, such as garlic, chives, scallions and leeks) to discourage greedy predators from eating them. Whatever the reason, you can blame or thank specific volatile chemicals for giving onions their characteristic bold flavor and fragrance.

A perennial vegetable, onions form a bulb the first year, which happens to be quite flavorful and functions as the plants energy store. The next year, they produce flowers and seeds, which keep the fragrance and cause the onion itself to keep reproducing.

Researchers have recently determined how it actually works. The eye-irritating factor released by chopping onions was once thought to be cut loose, so to speak, by the enzyme alliinase, which breaks down into flavor molecules, and in the process, some are converted to lachrymatory factor (LF) by LF synthase.1 The journal Nature published the study, in which the researchers explained:

"Here we show that this factor is not formed as a by-product of this reaction, but that it is specifically synthesized by a previously undiscovered enzyme, lachrymatory-factor synthase. It may be possible to develop a non-lachrymatory onion that still retains its characteristic flavour and high nutritional value by downregulating the activity of this synthase enzyme."2

For Optimal Health, Mind Your Oral Microbiome and Avoid Fluoride, Harsh Mouth Rinses and Amalgam Fillings "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

By Dr. Mercola

While often overlooked, your dental health can have a significant impact on your overall health. It's difficult to achieve high-level physical health if your oral health is ignored. Dr.Gerry Curatola, founder of Rejuvenation Dentistry, has over 30 years' experience in biological dentistry. As Curatola notes, your mouth is your "gateway to total body wellness." Indeed, thousands of studies have linked oral disease to systemic disease.

Inflammation is known to be a disease-causing force leading to most chronic illness, and gum disease and other oral diseases produce chronic low-grade inflammation that can have a deleterious effect on every major organ system in your body.

Oral disease can therefore contribute to diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and Alzheimer's, just to name a few. Advanced gum disease can raise your risk of a fatal heart attack up to 10 times. And, according to Curatola, if you get a heart attack related to gum disease, 9 times out of 10 it will be fatal.

There's also a 700 percent higher incidence of type 2 diabetes among those with gum disease, courtesy of the inflammatory effects of unbalanced microflora in your mouth.

Caring for Your Oral Microbiome

When the bacteria that cause tooth decay and gum disease enter into your circulatory system it causes your liver to release C-reactive proteins, which have inflammatory effects on your entire circulatory system. So a major part of oral health is attending to your oral microbiome.

Achieving oral health is really about promoting balance among the bacteria in your mouth. Interestingly, probiotics do not work in the oral cavity, so it's not as simple as adding beneficial bacteria to your mouth. Instead, as an initial step, you need to cease killing microbes in your mouth. Curatola explains:

"Pathogens are now being recognized as resident microbes that are out of balance [T]he same bacteria that keep us alive can have a pathogenic expression when disturbed.

I have been tooting the horn about getting out of the 'pesticide business.' I'm also speaking about natural pesticides. Not just triclosan, clorhexidin and those synthetic types, but also tea tree oil, tulsi oil, oregano oil and other antimicrobial oils that have a potent disturbing effect on the oral microbiome.

In the mouth, you don't want to have a 'scorched earth policy,' nuking all bacteria and hoping the good bugs come back [G]ood bugs basically have a harder chance of setting up a healthy-balanced microbiome when you disturb them, denature them, or dehydrate them with alco...

Columbus Statue Doused with Red Paint in Buffalo; Petition Given to Mayor to Have Statue Removed "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Doused with red paint, Columbus statue was attacked in Buffalo. Photo from Buffalo Police Departments Facebook page.

Published August 26, 2017

BUFFALO Buffalo Police Department posted a photo of Christopher Columbus statute doused with red paint on Friday on its Facebook page. Along with the photograph with Columbus with red paint on his legs and paint on the stone foundation, the department posted the following message:

Sometime overnight, this statue was vandalized in Columbus Park on the Citys west side. Anyone with information on who may be responsible is asked to call or text the confidential tip line at 716 847-2255.

It was the second time in the past week that objects honoring Columbus in public places have been under attack. Earlier this week, in Baltimore, a monument was defaced with a sledge hammer. The defacing was recorded and posted online.

Earlier on Thursday, a petition with more than 700 signatures was turned in to Buffalos mayor to have the statue removed from the park and have Columbus Park, where the statue is located, renamed. The petition cites the movement across America to have Confederate statues removed.

Columbus did not discover anything the Americas were inhabited by a great diversity of people and cultures, the petition reads. Instead, Columbus established the beachhead for ruthless conquest and settler colonialism and inaugurated the genocidal devastation of whole continents.

The American Indian Movement has long sought to eliminate the observance of Columbus Day. Here is language from a press released distributed by the American Indian Movement in October 2000:

COLUMBUS WAS THE BEGINNING OF THE AMERICAN HOLOCAUST, ETHNIC CLEANSING CHARACTERIZED BY MURDER, TORTURE, RAPING, PILLAGING, ROBBERY, SLAVERY, KIDNAPPING, AND FORCED REMOVALS OF INDIAN PEOPLE FROM THEIR HOMELANDS.

Navajo Nation Looks to Tribal Colleges to Develop Tribal Workforces "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

President Russell Begaye said tribal nations look to tribal institutions like SIPI to advance their technological workforces.

Published August 26, 2017

ALBUQUERQUE Navajo Naton President Russell Begaye told the staff at Southwestern Polytechnic Institute (SIPI) that they have an important task in developing a workforce of technical leaders for Native America.

The president spoke to the staff on Monday, Aug. 21, at the invitation of Dr. Sherry Allison, President of SIPI. More recently, President Begaye has joined the SIPI Board of Regents.

The Navajo Nation is exploring a new paradigm in developing advanced manufacturing, he said. We are looking to SIPI and other tribal colleges and universities to develop this workforce.

Advancements in technology call for research and production of materials to assist in building satellites, cell phones and renewable forms of energy. The potential for the Navajo Nation to be a part of this technological boom could be furthered through education and specified training.

For this technology to come from the Navajo Nation is amazing, President Begaye said. We need our education to evolve at a much higher level to train our students to be leaders in this developing industry.

In addition to the instructors, President Begaye tasked all Native American students with increasing their skillset to position their tribes to be technological leaders in emerging fields.

Our students are intelligent, theyre dreamers and innovators, he said. Theyre looking to gain knowledge. With many emerging fields of technology, we need SIPI to continue to expand and to train our people.

By fostering technological paradigms within our students and workforce, the Navajo Nation can change its economic and technical landscape said the president.

Grounding, or earthing, as some people call it, involves placing your feet directly on the ground without shoes or socks as a barrier. The logic behind this practice relates to the intense negative charge carried by the Earth. This charge is electron-rich, theoretically serving as a good supply of antioxidants and free-radical destroying electrons.

Dr. James Oschman, a PhD in biology from the University of Pittsburgh and an expert in the field of energy medicine, notes:

Re-peeling the effects of degradation: low-tech application of orange crop waste shows potential to restore tropical forests "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Researchers have come upon a new low-tech tropical forest restoration strategy, beginning with agricultural waste. They studied the effects on soil and forest health of the purposeful deposition of tons of processed orange peels and pulp on centuries-old rangeland remaining inside Guanacaste National Park in Costa Rica. In their study, published this week in the journal Restoration Ecology, they found three times the number and diversity of forest trees, a 176% greater aboveground woody tree biomass, and a dramatic increase in soil nutrients where the agrowaste had been applied, compared to an adjacent control site. The orange waste had been applied as part of an innovative public-private agreement to consolidate the conservation area and experiment with biodegradation of agricultural waste. The experiment resulted in not only a successful biodegradation, but also dramatic changes in soil productivity and vegetation cover.

Action on First Nations youth inquest recommendations called disappointing | Toronto Star: The inquest investigated the deaths of seven First Nations youth, who died between 2000 and 2011.

The five-person jury determined the deaths of three students Curran Strang, Robyn Harper and Kyle Morrisseau were accidents.

The deaths of the remaining four students Jordan Wabasse, Kyle Morrisseau and Jethro Anderson, whose bodies were found in the waterways of Thunder Bay, and Paul Panacheese, who died in his mothers kitchen were undetermined.

All seven were between the ages of 15 and 21 when they died.

Racism has been an ongoing issue in the northeastern Ontario city, and there are still concerns about the safety of First Nations students.

Breaking News

Published August 24, 2017

WASHINGTON The White House announced tonight President Donald Trump pardoned former sheriff Joe Arpaio, who was convicted in July 2017 for intentionally disobeying a judges order in an immigration case.

With a hurricane soon to hit Texas, the White House made the announcement hours after Apaio was informed. The pardon comes as no suprise, since Trump hinted Arpaio had nothing to worry about while speaking at a campaign rally in downtown Phoenix this past Tuesday night.

So was Sheriff Joe was convicted for doing his job? Trump asked supporters. Ill make a prediction. I think hes going to be just fine, OK.

Arpaio, 85, the ex-sheriff of Arizonas Maricopa County, was to be sentenced in October 2017 for his conviction of a misdemeanor charge for intentionally defying a judges order to stop his traffic patrols that targeted immigrants. Arpaio defied the judges for 18 months.

Arpaios harsh treatment against American Indians, Hispanics and immigrants earned him the reputation as being the toughest sheriff in America. He was an avid supporter of Donald Trump.

He was defeated last November for the post of Maricopa County sheriff, a position he held since his election in 1992.

A new Mike Quinsey.

Particularly I use discernment regarding all data about deliveries, packages, resets, RVs, and all that. I like to remember that everything we need is within ourselves, and whatever we need is supplied as we need it, and intend it.

The most important events that are waiting to go ahead are dependent on the first move to introduce a re-valuation of the currencies. It is the key to many important changes that have been prepared in advance, that will see elections quickly arranged to enable a new Republic to be established and a new President installed. Meantime Paul Ryan who has already been sworn in will be the President Elect until new elections are held to find a new Leader. The ultimate aim is to ensure prosperity for everyone.

The waiting game will have to go on a little longer but do not despair as you will be assured of benefiting from all that has been promised. For many it will be full of pleasant surprises , well beyond anything you may have imagined. Many of the old ways will have to be changed to reflect a society that has moved on where their level of consciousness is concerned. Peace will become your reality allowing people to come together in a common pursuit for growth

If you find the changes too much to understand, please accept that they will result in permanent peace and a great coming together of the people. Clearly many are in high places that are not of the Light and will have to step aside to allow progress to be made, and opposition to them will be to no avail.

The Coming Shale Debacle "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The Coming Shale Debacle

Executive Summary

  • How bad will "bad" get?
  • What will happen to world supply and prices?
  • Who is most vulnerable?
  • How quickly could this occur?

If you have not yet read Part 1: Why The Shale "Miracle" Is Becoming A "Debacle" available free to all readers, please click here to read it first.

How to Position Yourself

Okay, heres the summary so far.  The shale companies are burning cash and theyve done so every year. At every oil price point. And theres nothing in the data to suggest that will change this year, or next.

So the first question to ask is: When will investors wake up and stop funding these companies?

This should be immediately followed by: How much financial and economic damage will then result? And how soon afterwards?

Well, if the companies stop drilling because their funding dries up, the decline rates of the various shale basins would translate into the immediate and sudden loss of a huge amount of oil production.  

How much?

According to the EIA the decline rates each month for the three biggest shale fields would be between 53,000 and 158,000 barrels per month.

Taken together, one month of not bringing any new wells online for these three fields would result in a drop in oil output of -314,000 barrels.  And a similar (but slightly smaller) drop the next month.  And the month after that, the same thing.  And so on.

After just 3 months the US would be down more than -1,000,000 barrels per day when all the other shale fields are taken into account. 

Now thats extreme, and its very unlikely that drilling would just suddenly stop one day. But the point here is that...

Serum C-reactive protein levels may serve as an indicator of ovarian cancer risk. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Medicine (Baltimore). 2017 Aug ;96(34):e7822. PMID: 28834887 Abstract Title:  C-reactive protein and risk of ovarian cancer: A systematic review and meta-analysis. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Although several studies have suggested an association between elevated C-reactive protein (CRP) and ovarian cancer risk, others have yielded contradictory results. To address this issue, we conducted a meta-analysis.METHODS: Studies were identified by searching PubMed and EMBASE up to July 2017 without language restrictions. Six case-control studies and 1 cohort study were included, including 1898 ovarian cancer cases. Pooled risk estimates were generated by using the fixed-effect model or the random-effect model based on the heterogeneity between studies.RESULTS: As our data shown, the combined ORs were 1.04 (95%CI: 0.90-1.21) and 1.34 (95% CI: 1.06-1.70) for the risk in the second and third tertiles of CRP with those in the bottom tertile, respectively. Subgroup analysis showed that with respect to the top tertile of CRP level, the association was significant for studies obtaining CRP from serum (OR=1.99; 95% CI: 1.30-3.07), conducted in the USA (OR=1.41; 95% CI: 1.15-1.72), using high-sensitivity immunotubidimetric assay (OR=1.37; 95% CI: 1.14-1.64), using Hs-CRP (OR=1.46; 95% CI: 1.21-1.75) and with follow-up period longer than 10 years (OR=1.41; 95% CI: 1.18-1.70).CONCLUSION: Collectively, our findings propose that serum CRP levels may serve as an indicator of ovarian cancer risk. Further studies are needed to definitively identify the role of CRP in the etiology of ovarian cancer.

Green tea polyphenols ameliorate the early renal damage induced by a high-fat diet. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Oxid Med Cell Longev. 2017 ;2017:9032792. Epub 2017 Jul 26. PMID: 28814987 Abstract Title:  Green Tea Polyphenols Ameliorate the Early Renal Damage Induced by a High-Fat Diet via Ketogenesis/SIRT3 Pathway. Abstract:  SCOPE: Several reports in the literature have suggested the renoprotective effects of ketone bodies and green tea polyphenols (GTPs). Our previous study found that GTP consumption could elevate the renal expression of the ketogenic rate-limiting enzyme, which was decreased by a high-fat diet (HFD) in rats. Here, we investigated whether ketogenesis can mediate renoprotection by GTPs against an HFD.METHODS AND RESULTS: Wistar rats were fed a standard or HFD with or without GTPs for 18 weeks. The renal oxidative stress level, kidney function, renal expression, and activity levels of mitochondrial 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA (HMG-CoA) synthase 2 (HMGCS2) and sirtuin 3(SIRT3) were detected. The increased renal oxidative stress and the loss of renal function induced by the HFD were ameliorated by GTPs. Renal ketogenesis and SIRT3 expression and activity levels, which were reduced by the HFD, were restored by GTPs. In vitro, HEK293 cells were transfected with the eukaryotic expression plasmid pcDNA HMGCS2. GTP treatment could upregulate HMGCS2 and SIRT3 expression. Although SIRT3 expression was not affected by HMGCS2 transfection, the 4-hydroxy-2-nonenal (4-HNE) level and the acetyl-MnSOD (K122)/MnSOD ratio were reduced in HMGCS2-transfected cells in the context of H2O2.CONCLUSION: The ketogenesis/SIRT3 pathway mediates the renoprotection of GTPs against the oxidative stress induced by an HFD.

EGCG might be regarded as a prospective therapeutic candidate in modulating diabetic nephropathy. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  J Agric Food Chem. 2017 Aug 21. Epub 2017 Aug 21. PMID: 28823168 Abstract Title:  IMPACT OF EGCG SUPPLEMENTATION ON THE PROGRESSION OF DIABETIC NEPHROPATHY IN RATS: AN INSIGHT INTO FIBROSIS AND APOPTOSIS. Abstract:  Apoptosis is an active response of cells to altered microenvironments which is characterized by cell shrinkage, chromatin condensation and DNA fragmentation, in variety of cell types such as renal epithelial cells, endothelial cells, mesangial cells and podocytes. Hyperglycemia is among the micro environmental factors that may facilitate apoptosis which plays a decisive role in the initiation of diabetic nephropathy. Transforming growth factor-, emerges as a powerful fibrogenic factor in the development of renal hypertrophy. Although, a number of potential treatment strategies exist for diabetic nephropathy, considering the ease of use and bioavailability, phytochemicals stands distinct as the preeminent option. EGCG, a green tea catechin is one such phytochemical which possess hypoglycemic and anti-fibrotic activity. The present study aims to explore the potential of EGCG to prevent apoptosis in high-fat diet and STZ induced diabetic nephropathy rats by assessing renal function, pro-fibrotic marker, and the expression of apoptotic and anti-apoptotic proteins. Our results validate EGCG as a potential anti-apoptotic agent evidently by improving renal function via down regulating TGF-, consequently ameliorating diabetic nephropathy. In accordance, EGCG might be regarded as a prospective therapeutic candidate in modulating diabetic nephropathy, thus being a promising treatment. Key words: Diabetic nephropathy, EGCG, High-fat diet, STZ, TGF-, Apoptosis.

Aluminum exposure at human dietary levels promotes vascular dysfunction and increases blood pressure in rats. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Toxicology. 2017 Aug 18. Epub 2017 Aug 18. PMID: 28826906 Abstract Title:  Aluminum exposure at human dietary levels promotes vascular dysfunction and increases blood pressure in rats: a concerted action of NAD(P)H oxidase and COX-2. Abstract:  Aluminum (Al) is a non-essential metal and a significant environmental contaminant and is associated with a number of human diseases including cardiovascular disease. We investigated the effects of Al exposure at doses similar to human dietary levels on the cardiovascular system over a 60day period. Wistar male rats were divided into two major groups and received orally: 1) Low aluminum level - rats were subdivided and treated for 60days as follows: a) Untreated - ultrapure water; b) AlCl3 at a dose of 8.3mg/kg bw for 60 days, representing human Al exposure by diet; and 2) High aluminum level - rats were subdivided and treated for 42days as follows: C) Untreated - ultrapure water; d) AlCl3 at 100mg/kg bw for 42 days, representing a high level of human exposure to Al. Effects on systolic blood pressure (SBP) and vascular function of aortic and mesenteric resistance arteries (MRA) were studied. Endothelium and smooth muscle integrity were evaluated by concentration-response curves to acetylcholine (ACh) and sodium nitroprusside. Vasoconstrictor responses to phenylephrine (Phe) in the presence and absence of endothelium and in the presence of the NOS inhibitor L-NAME, the potassium channels blocker TEA, the NAD(P)H oxidase inhibitor apocynin, superoxide dismutase (SOD), the non-selective COX inhibitor indomethacin and the selective COX-2 inhibitor NS 398 were analyzed. Vascular reactive oxygen species (ROS), lipid peroxidation and total antioxidant capacity, were measured. The mRNA expressions of eNOS, NAD(P)H oxidase 1 and 2, SOD1, COX-2 and thromboxane A2 receptor (TXA-2 R) were also investigated. Al exposure at human dietary levels impaired the cardiovascular system and these effects were almost the same as Al exposure at much higher levels. Al increased SBP, decreased ACh-induced relaxation, increased response to Phe, decreased endothelial modulation of vasoconstrictor responses, the bioavailability of nitric oxide (NO), the involvement of potassium channels on vascular responses, as well as increased ROS production from NAD(P)H oxidase and contractile prostanoids mainly from COX-2 in both aorta and mesenteric arteries. Al exposure increased vascular ROS production and lipid peroxidation as well as altered the antioxidant status in aorta and MRA. Al decreased vascular eNOS and SOD1 mRNA levels and increased the NAD(P)H oxidase 1, COX-2 and TXA-2 R mRNA levels. Our results point to an excess of ROS mainly from NAD(P)H oxidase after Al exposure and the increased vascular prostanoids from COX-2 acting in concert to decrease NO bioavailabili...

EGCG might be an effective potential candidate to reduce the macrovascular complications in diabetes. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Braz J Med Biol Res. 2017 Aug 17 ;50(10):e6511. Epub 2017 Aug 17. PMID: 28832766 Abstract Title:  Potential benefit of (-)-epigallocatechin-3-gallate for macrovascular complications in diabetes. Abstract:  Vascular problems are the most common complications in diabetes. Substantial evidence from epidemiological and pathophysiological studies show that hyperglycemia is a major risk factor for macrovascular complications in patients with diabetes. (-)-Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), the major catechin derived from green tea, is known to exert a variety of cardiovascular beneficial effects. The protective effects of EGCG in diabetes are also evident. However, whether EGCG is beneficial against macrovascular complications that occur in diabetes remains unknown. Our previous studies demonstrated that treatment of EGCG inhibits high glucose-induced vascular smooth muscle cell proliferation and suppresses high glucose-mediated vascular inflammation in human umbilical vein endothelial cells. Therefore, we hypothesize that EGCG might be an effective potential candidate to reduce the macrovascular complications in diabetes.

PMID:  Food Funct. 2017 Aug 24. Epub 2017 Aug 24. PMID: 28836632 Abstract Title:  Quality components and antidepressant-like effects of GABA green tea. Abstract:  Gamma ()-aminobutyric acid (GABA) green tea, with high GABA content, is a kind of special green tea. The goals of this study are to analyze the changes in quality components of green tea during anaerobic treatment, and to investigate whether or not the extract of GABA present in green tea can prevent depression or improve the depressive state of animals. Results showed that GABA content in green tea had increased significantly after anaerobic treatment. The contents of tea polysaccharides, total free amino acids, and water extracts were also increased whereas tea polyphenols were reduced. More importantly, the extract of GABA green tea could alleviate mouse depression and stress from desperate environments through the forced swim test (FST), tail suspension test (TST), mRNA and protein expression levels of GABAA receptors. Therefore, these results indicate that GABA green tea may have a health effect on prevention and alleviation of depression, and it works on the GABAergic neurotransmission of mouse cerebral cortex via up-regulating expression of the GABAA receptor 1 subunit, thus ameliorating depression.

PMID:  J Nutr. 2017 Aug 23. Epub 2017 Aug 23. PMID: 28835392 Abstract Title:  Epigallocatechin Gallate Has a Neurorescue Effect in a Mouse Model of Parkinson Disease. Abstract:  Background: Parkinson disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disorder that has been associated with many factors, including oxidative stress, inflammation, and iron accumulation. The antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and iron-chelating properties of epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), a major polyphenol in green tea, may offer protection against PD.Objective: We sought to determine the neurorescue effects of EGCG and the role of iron in 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP)-induced PD.Methods: We evaluated the neurorescue effect of EGCG (25 mg/kg, 7 d, oral administration) against MPTP-induced (20 mg/kg, 3 d, intraperitoneal injection) neurodegeneration in C57 male black mice. Thirty mice weighing25 g were divided into 3 groups: control, MPTP, and MPTP + EGCG. The neurorescue effect of EGCG was assessed with the use of motor behavior tests, neurotransmitter analysis, oxidative stress indicators, and iron-related protein expression.Results: Compared with the control group, MPTP treatment shortened the mice's latency to fall from the rotarod by 16% (P

Fasting to Heal Autoimmune Disease "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

 

 

28012973 plate with knife, fork and a pea

Fasting, a mainstay of virtually every cultural and religious tradition on earth, is an essential tool in the management of autoimmune disease, and should be considered as a therapeutic intervention in autoimmune patients in order to improve both metabolic and immune parameters. 

Fasting: A Long-Neglected Facet of the Human Condition

For millennia, fasting has been one of the anchoring rituals in a variety of spiritual denominations. For example, all the major world religions, including Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Christianity, and Judaism espouse religious doctrines that prescribe fasting on designated calendar days (1). In addition, fasting is a practice rooted in evolutionary biology, since throughout evolutionary history, human bodies have adapted to periods of feast and famine. Matron and colleagues articulate this with, Because a...

Pomegranate peel extract can protect against age-related hearing loss. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Neurobiol Aging. 2017 Jul 25 ;59:30-40. Epub 2017 Jul 25. PMID: 28837860 Abstract Title:  Pomegranate peel extract attenuates D-galactose-induced oxidative stress and hearing loss by regulating PNUTS/PP1 activity in the mouse cochlea. Abstract:  Oxidative stress is considered to be a major contributor to age-related hearing loss (ARHL). Here, we investigated whether pomegranate peel extract (PPE) protected against hearing loss by decreased oxidative stress in the cochlea of D-galactose-induced accelerated aging mice. The aging mice exhibited an increase in hearing threshold shifts and hair cells loss, which were improved in the PPE-treated aging mice. The aging mice also exhibited an increase in 4-hydroxynonenal, the expression of protein phosphatase 1 nuclear targeting subunit (PNUTS), p53 and caspase-3, and a decrease in protein phosphatase 1 (PP1) and MDM2 in the cochlea. PPE treatment reversed the changes in aforementioned molecules. Our results suggested that PPE can protect against ARHL, the underlying mechanisms may involve in the inhibition of oxidative damage of cochlea, possibly by regulating PNUTS/PP1 pathway. The results from the present study provide a new therapeutic strategy to use PPE for prevention of ARHL.

Woman Arrested for Toppling Statue Could Be Rewarded With Taxpayer-funded Scholarship "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Conservative Firing Line | 8/20/2017 | Staff

Click For Photo: http://conservativefiringline.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/Screen-Shot-2017-08-15-at-9.55.08-PM-715x405.png

Twenty-two-year-old Marxist college student Takiyah Thompson has been charged with two felonies in toppling a Civil War statue in Durham, North Carolina. For her actions, she should have to pay for the restoration of the statue and spend some serious time in prison, during which time she can have plenty of time to consider what she had done.

But it appears she could get rewarded instead. Thompson attends North Carolina Central University, which was the countrys first black liberal arts university. After receiving a standing ovation from her entire class, she was put in for a full scholarship at the publicly funded university.

Income - Tax - Ride - Felonies - Resident

That means if you pay federal income tax, you will be giving her a free ride for committing felonies and if you are a resident of North Carolina, you will pay an even bigger portion in state taxes that support the university.

In other words, you get to foot the bill for a college education for a young Marxist-Leninist for committing felonies. For some strange reason, that doesnt seem quite fair to me.

Navajo Nation Leadership Meets with Congressman OHalleran to Discuss Critical Issues "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Navajo Nation President Russell Begaye with U.S. Congressman Tom OHalleran

Published August 25, 2017

TUBA CITY, ARIZONA To gain firsthand accounts of concerns in areas of specialized health care services, expanded and improved broadband coverage, and housing needs for health care staff, Congressman Tom OHalleran joined President Russell Begaye in touring two facilities in Tuba City on Tuesday, Aug. 15.

These visits are not part of a listening tour, said President Begaye. We set up the visits to establish communication between the facilities, departments, congressional representation and myself, so that we can address these issues at a higher level.

The congressman toured the Tuba City Regional Health Care Corporation (TCRHCC) and met with TCRHCC CEO Lynette Bonar who said the facilitys senior leadership is comprised of 70 percent Native Americans, primarily Navajo.

Bonar would like to see health care service improve throughout the community through health education.

We do more than just primary care, she said. We also do public health and environmental care.

The CEO said TCRHCC receives referrals from Hopi Health Care, Kayenta Health Center and the Chinle Comprehensive Health Care Facility. According to Bonar, if TCRHCC werent in place, a lot of patients would have to travel further south for health care.

The Flagstaff Medical Center cannot absorb the overflow of patients from the Navajo Nation, she said. If we didnt take the 140 patients referred, those patients would have gone south. We capture this funding. In 2015, TCRHCCC received 371 inpatient admission from these areas.

For TCRHCC, an Indian Health Service funding agreement covers 33 percent of their budget, third-party reimbursements cover 65 percent and grants make up the final two percent.

Bonar sees the need for fiber optic line to be put in to increase reliable intranet connections within the health care facility. Faster and more reliable intranet connection would contribute to improved efficiency, greater training opportunities and advancements in telemedicine.

Through Navajo Tribal Utility Authority this will cost $2 million dollars, she said.

The CEO advocated for a specialized treatment facility addressing onc...

Science Suggests Love and Receptiveness to Truth Enhance Psi Abilities -- Telepathy Can be Explained by Interacting Coherent Electromagnetic Fields "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"


by Justin Deschamps,

Interactions between electrically dynamic systems provide a basis to understand so-called telepathic contact because living things are bioelectrical in nature. Of note, Ben Davidson, of Suspicious Observers, recently produced a rather heady scientific video about magnetic connections disrupting stable electric currents or circuits, causing the two or more systems to rebalance themselves in a rather reactive way. In essense, electric circuits are stabilized flows of electricity that are enshrouded by a magnetic field. Plasma currents, which are flows of electricity that are guided by magnetic fields, are disrupted when the fields interact, causing a rapid reorientation of the flow of electricity, and information contained therein, which in turn causes a restabilization. The resulting effect is that the two fields collide producing a new field that is informed by the preceding fields. This is very interesting when one considers that life is also a type of plasma or flow of electricity producing strong magnetic fieldsin humans, this field is produced by the heart and informed by the mind/body.

Water issues drain Northland hapu's resources - NZ Herald "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Water issues drain Northland hapu's resources - NZ Herald: Zodiac Holdings has recently applied for consent from Whangarei District Council (WDC) to build a 3600sqm factory at the old bore site, previously owned by the council, across the road from the springs.

Zodiac, incorporating New Zealand Spring Water, said in its application it could mitigate issues such as the factory exceeding the council's size regime, limited vehicle parking, wastewater disposal and the extra traffic load on the road.

Zodiac has a Northland Regional Council (NRC) permit to take up to 150,000 litres a day to bottle water it will brand as Thunder Mountain and, according to its website, sell to domestic and Asian markets.

The plant would employ up to 20 workers, most at the Poroti site.

These findings provide novel insights into the anti-neuroinflammatory effects of Allyl isothiocyanate on microglial cells. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Int J Mol Sci. 2017 Jul 3 ;18(7). Epub 2017 Jul 3. PMID: 28671636 Abstract Title:  Neuroprotective and Anti-Inflammatory Activities of Allyl Isothiocyanate through Attenuation of JNK/NF-B/TNF- Signaling. Abstract:  Allyl isothiocyanate (AITC), present in Wasabia japonica (wasabi), is an aliphatic isothiocyanate derived from the precursor sinigrin, which is a glucosinolate present in vegetables of the Brassica family. Traditionally, it has been used to treat rheumatic arthralgia, blood circulation, and pain. This study focuses on its anti-apoptotic activity through the regulation of lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced neuroinflammation. Furthermore, we assessed its neuroprotective efficacy, which it achieves through the upregulation of nerve growth factor (NGF) production. Pretreatment with AITC significantly inhibited inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) and cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) expression, decreased tumor necrosis factor- (TNF-), interleukin-6 (IL-6), prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), and nitric oxide (NO) production in activated microglia, and increased the nerve growth factor (NGF) and neurite outgrowth in neuroblastoma cells. AITC inhibited the nuclear factor (NF-B-mediated transcription by modulating mitogen activated protein kinase (MAPK) signaling, particularly downregulating c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) phosphorylation, which was followed by a reduction in the TNF- expression in activated microglia. This promising effect of AITC in controlling JNK/NF-B/TNF- cross-linking maintains the Bcl-2 gene family and protects neuroblastoma cells from activated microglia-induced toxicity. These findings provide novel insights into the anti-neuroinflammatory effects of AITC on microglial cells, which may have clinical significance in neurodegeneration.

Angular Geometry: Colorful Daily GIFs from the Mind of Tyler Haywood "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Over four years ago, designer Tyler Haywood started posting GIFs on Tumblr under the name Angular Geometry. Haywood liked the process so much, hes never stopped posting, creating a new custom GIF for his blog every single day. The GIFs are related to his interest in motion graphics, focusing on the tiny but captivating movements of Rubiks Cube-like structures, rippling water, and dazzling rainbows.

I have always thought of Angular Geometry as a sketchbook, Haywood shares with Colossal. Just open it up and see what happens. Every day is a fresh start, so there is no need to worry all that much. Sometimes I will scroll through my archive of over 1500 GIFs and see patterns or ideas that come through in my art that I didnt realize were there in the moment of creation. It is an interesting catalog of my subconscious in some ways.

Peggy Guggenheim: The Woman Behind the Art "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

41A4W6ZRZYL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_On the 26th of August 1898, American matron and collector of the arts Peggy Guggenheim was born in New York. Peggy Guggenheim was one of ten children-the second of three daughters-born to Benjamin Guggenheim and Florette Seligman, both second-generation members of German-Jewish families that had built their wealth in America. Two of her uncles, Solomon and Simon, established the foundations supporting the famous museum and grant organizations, while Benjamin dabbled in largely unsuccessful businesses and took numerous mistresses in Europe. He was both a victim and hero of the Titanics fatal maiden voyage (the French singer traveling with him survived). Florette Guggenheim, already estranged from her husband and by all accounts a rather odd personality, placed her children in the care of governesses. A painting by Franz von Lenbach (c. 1903) of Peggy leaning against her older sister Benita shows poignantly their mutual dependency. Brought up in the trappings of wealth, the girls inherited $450,000 each from their fathers tangled finances. Peggy managed her money well and used it productively throughout her life.

Man gains massive competitive advantage from business manual bought in airport "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Derek Parker was a mid-level manager for a company selling toner. However, despite the apparent glamour of his fast-paced life, he had a nagging sensation that he had somehow lost his edge, and was no longer the hungry young gunslinger who had graduated from De Montfort Universitys business school ten years before.

This was all to change one day at London Luton Airport when, while waiting for his Easyjet flight to Alicante to start boarding, Derek found himself browsing the business section of the airport bookshop.

My eyes fell on the title The Ten Secret Habits of Highly Effective Motivational Communication Management Executives. I picked it up, and I just couldnt stop reading. It was incredible. I suddenly saw what had been holding me back all these years.

He immediately told his boss at the toner company to get stuffed, and now makes a living writing business manuals full of empty platitudes and meaningless waffle to be sold at airports.

His most recent book, 19 Ways To Make Sure You Never Miss Grabbing That Unmissable Opportunity With Both Hands At The Same Time, begins with the explanation that he is writing it on a yacht in Cannes, and if you follow the advice in his book, you could be too.

Wasabi can be used as a new functional food to prevent IBDs due to its anti-colitic effect. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Food Funct. 2017 Aug 1 ;8(8):2865-2874. Epub 2017 Jul 20. PMID: 28726958 Abstract Title:  Wasabia japonica is a potential functional food to prevent colitis via inhibiting the NF-B signaling pathway. Abstract:  Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs), including Crohn's disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC), are prevalent and debilitating health problems worldwide. Many types of drugs are used to treat IBDs, but they exhibit adverse effects such as vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain, diarrhea, etc. In order to overcome the limitations of current therapeutic drugs, scientists have searched for functional foods from natural resources. In this study, we investigated the anti-colitic effects of Wasabia japonica extract in a DSS-induced colitis model. Wasabi japonica is a plant of the Brassicaceae family that has recently been reported to exhibit properties of detoxification, anti-inflammation, and induction of apoptosis in cancer cells. In this study, we generated wasabi ethanol extract (WK) and assessed its anti-colitic effect. In addition, in order to improve delivery of the extract to the colon, WK was coated with 5% Eudragit S100 (WKE), after which the anti-colitic effects of WKE were assessed. In conclusion, WK prevented development of colitis through inhibition of the NF-kB signaling pathway and recovery of epithelial tight junctions. In addition, the anti-colitic effect of WK was enhanced by improving its delivery to the colon by coating the WK with Eudragit S100. Therefore, we suggest that wasabi can be used as a new functional food to prevent IBDs due to its anti-colitic effect.

Dogs on the Loose Reviews & Tips "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Think about employing some inside in the event you have a dog and will need to stop it from randomly chewing. It is essentially not possible for a dog to receive loose if contained in this way. Second, more than a few folks are allergic to dogs, in some instances severely so. First, they are afraid of dogs, for a host of reasons, including past trauma. Any dog which arrives by you hear the chain, individuals are reacting. Neighborhood dogs can get feral, even though the reverse is rarely seen. Those people who own what others call problem dogs are only able to be be accountable for so much.

You might not be permitted to have a dog later on and your dog could possibly be destroyed. A telephone call to them and youll learn where your dog is and the way it is possible to get him back. Nuisance dogs can harm crops, livestock and property. Handbag dogs show up in the coastal resorts.

Dogs may, obviously, break loose. Ordinarily, your dog will escape as youre away. Such a dog could be seized and impounded. Loose dogs can run in the road and become hit by a vehicle or cause a traffic crash. These dogs might become desperate and dangerous. City dogs dont understand country traffic, so they frequently wind up dead on the face of the street.

A few of the canines are thought to be pets while some are strays. Sadly, individuals dump pets since they cant deal with the guilt of knowing their pet may be euthanized in the shelter. Domestic pets find it impossible to survive in the nation and often die painful deaths. If youre likely to select the animal beside you in the vehicle, be certain to own a harness for it. Such an animal might be seized and impounded. Mountain lions, coyotes and possibly even deer also have attacked free-roaming dogs.

Abstract:  Increasing concern is being given to the association between risk of cancer and exposure to low-dose bisphenol A (BPA), especially in young-aged population. In this study, we investigated the effects of repeated oral treatment of low to high dose BPA in juvenile Sprague-Dawley rats. Exposing juvenile rats to BPA (0, 0.5, 5, 50, and 250 mg/kg oral gavage) from post-natal day 9 for 90 days resulted in higher food intakes and increased body weights in biphasic dose-effect relationship. Male mammary glands were atrophied at high dose, which coincided with sexual pre-maturation of females. Notably, proliferative changes with altered cell foci and focal inflammation were observed around bile ducts in the liver of all BPA-dosed groups in males, which achieved statistical significance from 0.5 mg/kg (ANOVA, Dunnett's test, p

The 1.9 million-acre Grand Staircase-Escalante Monument was established by President Bill Clinton in 1996. The 1.35 million-acre Bears Ears National Monument was created by President Barack Obama in December last year and he expanded the Cascade-Siskiyou Monument created by Clinton from 65,000 to 113,00 acres in January, 2017.

Naturally, environmental activists are livid. No president has ever shown such disregard for the publics desire to protect our public lands or such blatant pandering to the industries that want to drill, mine, and log them, asserts the Sierra Club.

University of Illinois bans 'war chant' during sporting events - Chicago Tribune "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

University of Illinois bans 'war chant' during sporting events - Chicago Tribune: Illinois has faced decades of criticism for its use of Native American imagery in sports.

The universitys board of trustees banned the Chief Illiniwek mascot in 2007, two years after an NCAA decision barring teams that use potentially offensive Native American imagery from hosting postseason play.

A group of former Chief portrayers and current students determined to maintain the tradition continue to wear a headdress, stereotypical Native American clothing and war paint on their faces at sporting events, although the university does not endorse this group.

Illinois said it has no plans to end the Three-in-One fight song that has been played since the early 1900s. When it is played at basketball games, some students cross their arms and bow their heads in another act of stereotypical Native American appropriation. Students also wear shirts, not sold by the university, that feature feathers or say, Bring back the Chief.

Simplified blower and furnace experiments "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Blower description

The purpose of this project was to test a simplified blower design connected to a furnace. I purposely did this to show that people in most natural environments should be able to replicate this design without difficulty. This blower differed from the previous one in several ways to simplify the construction method.

Firstly, the impellor was simply a stick as a rotor with a 40 cm wide rectangle of bark tied into a split in its end with a bark fibre cordage. A stone with a pit carved into it acted as a socket for the lower half of the rotor to spin in. If spun in the dirt the rotor can drill down and the position of the impellor can reach ground level causing the blades to bump into rocks and dirt. Later, I plastered the stone socket into the ground with mud to hold it securely in position (not shown in the video, just be aware of this solution if the socket shifts around too much).

Secondly, the housing for the blower was made in situ of ordinary mud (dirt and water on site). It was a bit more than 40 cm in internal diameter. The walls of the housing were solid mud and the roof was made of sticks covered with mud. An opening more than half the length of the impellor was left in the roof to remove the impellor for maintenance and to admit air into the blower during operation. In use, the portion of this opening near the front of the blower was covered with a tile. If left opened the blower still worked but covering it improved performance by preventing air escaping near the front. In places where water is not available, a housing shaped pit covered with sticks and dirt might work instead.

Finally, a simple length of cordage was used to drive the rotation of the impellor. This cord was placed in a notch carved into the top of the impellor rotor. The cord was wrapped around the rotor about 2.5 times. During operation the cords were pulled outwards causing the rotation. When fully unwound, the momentum of the impellor then wrapped the cord back around in the other direction. Then the cords were pulled outwards again causing the impellor to spin in the other direction. Note that this is a centrifugal blower with a symmetrical housing, therefore it doesnt matter whether the fan spins one way or the other (clockwise or anti clockwise), the blower will always suck air in to its open top and force it into the furnace.

This design is easy to make and use. It can be made with minimal materials by unskilled people. The impellor design is simple yet effective. A stick, some bark and lashing of some sort should be available in most areas. The housing being made from mud,...

Hands up, Dont shoot! I cant breathe!
Black Lives Matter! No justice No peace!
I know that we can overcome because I had a dream,
A dream we tore this racist broken system apart at the seams.

These rallying slogans, which evoke images of the 2014 Ferguson protests, Eric Garners last breaths, and countless exasperated cries to draw attention to the nations endemic police brutality, have become emblematic of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Yet in this instance, instead of shouting in the streets, these slogans were turned into lyrics sung by the trembling, beleaguered voice of singer-songwriter Kimya Dawson. On Tuesday at the California African American Museum, her elegiac recording At the Seams ushered visitors, protest placards in hand, through the exhibition No Justice, No Peace: LA 1992.

For the final program before the shows closing weekend, Black Lives Matter co-founder and artist Patrisse Khan-Cullors performed Remembering 92, a moving tribute not only to those lives lost in the 1992 Los Angeles uprising, but to the countless black women and men killed by police brutality and domestic terrorism. The performance was the citys latest iteration of Black Lives Matter art-activism, following last years performance at the Geffen Contemporary at the Museum of Contemporary Art, where Khan-Cullors and artist Tanya Lucia Bernard recited the names of African Americans shot by the police and shared a poetic dialogue...

Ether Price Analysis: Bullish Momentum Seems to Be Waning "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Ether Price Analysis

Early in the summer, the entire crypto market took a sustained, downward move that left ETH-USD dropping in value by approximately 60 percent. At the start of the bear market, the price of ether was $360 and ultimately found lows bottoming out in the $130s. As of today, ETH-USD market price is in the mid $330s, and the volume shows no signs of new investment interest:

Figure_1 (2).JPGFigure 1: ETH-USD, 12-Hour Candles, Bitfinex, Bear Market Fibonacci Retracement Values

Although the high of the market was in the upper $400s, my personal opinion is that its best to view the market beginning within the $360 values. This price range represents the market acceptance of the impending bear market. Currently, ether is pushing new local highs on decreasing volume. Leading into this push, ETH-USD spent a couple weeks consolidating around the $300 range before ultimately breaking out to $340.

Lets first take a look at the macro trend market indicators and then zoom in to the smaller timescales:

Figure_2 (2).JPGFigure 2: ETH-USD, 6-Hour Candles, Bitfinex, Current Bull Run

Three major indications of bullish exhaustion are visible in the $300 values:

  1. Price growth on decreasing volume

  2. MACD divergence

  3. RSI divergence

The market is currently struggling to make new highs, and the classic signs of bullish momentum loss are seen quite clearly on the RSI and MACD.

Zooming in to the 1-hour candle trend, we see further signs of bullish exhaustion:

The MACD and RSI momentum divergence is visible within a bearish pattern known as an Ascending Wedge. Currently, the market is attempting to break to the bottom of the wedge and shows moderate signs of sell volume increasing upon the breakout point. A sustained breakdown of this pattern would g...

Indianz.Com > Housing Secretary Ben Carson addresses tribal housing conference in Montana: The Trump administration has not taken an official stance on the issue and news reports did not say whether Carson discussed it. When Heidi Frechette, the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Native American Programs, was asked about it at a Senate Committee on Indian Affairs hearing in June, she said she was unable to offer a policy position.

"I'm career staff at HUD so I don't comment on what vehicle is appropriate," Frechette said on June 13. She was hired for the position in May 2016.

The person who would be able to offer a policy position is the Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian Housing. President Donald Trump, though, has failed to nominate someone for the job, eight months into his administration.

Last weekend, Tucker was on hand to see the sister of his owner, Jeff Brines, get married to her fianc, but he was far from some random guest. The future husband and wife had actually chosen the dog to be their ring bearer at the ceremony, delivering their wedding bands down the aisle tied to his collar with twine.

"They both just recognize Tucker as a really special animal," Brines told The Dodo.

But things didn't go quite as planned.

Moments before the ceremony was set to start, Brines briefly lost track of Tucker. It's unclear exactly what he was up to it was an outdoor wedding with lots of things to explore but Tucker evidently lost some precious cargo along the way. The rings were suddenly gone.

"When he came back ringless after disappearing for two minutes, I was shocked, to say the least," Brines said. "All I can think is a rose bush grabbed the twine and undid the knot."

A hurried search for the rings proved fruitless.

Curcumin may be considered as protective factor against inflammatory state of PCOS. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Cell J. 2017 Oct ;19(3):425-433. Epub 2017 Aug 19. PMID: 28836404 Abstract Title:  Anti-Inflammatory Effects of Curcumin on Insulin Resistance Index, Levels of Interleukin-6, C-Reactive Protein, and Liver Histology in Polycystic Ovary Syndrome-Induced Rats. Abstract:  OBJECTIVES: Curcumin protects the liver against injury and fibrosis through suppressing hepatic inflammation, attenuating hepatic oxidative stress (OS), and inhibiting hepatic stellate cells (HSCs) activation. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) are considered as common metabolic disorders. Low-grade chronic inflammation with different markers, such as elevated C-reactive protein (CRP) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) levels, play a crucial role in PCOS. This study aimed to evaluate the therapeutic effects of curcumin on IL-6 and CRP levels as well as insulin resistance (IR) index on liver function in PCOS rats.MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this experimental study, 90 adult Wistar rats were divided into control (n=18), sham (n=18), PCOS (n=18) and curcumin-treated PCOS groups (n=36). PCOS group was injected subcutaneously with 2 mg estradio-valerate (E2V). After 60 days, PCOS group was treated with curcumin [100 and 300 mg/kg body weight (BW)] for 14 days and anesthetized by chloroform. Blood and liver samples were collected for histological and serological analyses. Data were analyzed using In-Stat 3 via one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA).RESULTS: Histological and serological analyses showed a reduction in number of necrotic cells, IR index, as well as IL-6 and CRP levels in PCOS rats that were treated with various concentrations of curcumin.CONCLUSIONS: In this study, curcumin decreased liver inflammation by induction of insulin sensitivity and reduction of hepatic necrosis. Therefore, curcumin may be considered as protective factor against inflammatory state of PCOS.

Repeated exposure to systemic inflammation was associated with increased risk of future depressive symptoms among women. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Transl Psychiatry. 2017 Aug 15 ;7(8):e1208. Epub 2017 Aug 15. PMID: 28809860 Abstract Title:  Repeated exposure to systemic inflammation and risk of new depressive symptoms among older adults. Abstract:  Evidence on systemic inflammation as a risk factor for future depression is inconsistent, possibly due to a lack of regard for persistency of exposure. We examined whether being inflamed on multiple occasions increases risk of new depressive symptoms using prospective data from a population-based sample of adults aged 50 years or older (the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing). Participants with less than four of eight depressive symptoms in 2004/05 and 2008/09 based on the Eight-item Centre for Epidemiologic Studies Depression scale were analysed. The number of occasions with C-reactive protein3mgl(-1) over the same initial assessments (1 vs 0 occasion, and 2 vs 0 occasions) was examined in relation to change in depressive symptoms between 2008/09 and 2012/13 and odds of developing depressive symptomology (having more than or equal to four of eight symptoms) in 2012/13. In multivariable-adjusted regression models (n=2068), participants who were inflamed on 1 vs 0 occasion showed no increase in depressive symptoms nor raised odds of developing depressive symptomology; those inflamed on 2 vs 0 occasions showed a 0.10 (95% confidence intervals (CIs)=-0.07, 0.28) symptom increase and 1.60 (95% CI=1.00, 2.55) times higher odds. In further analyses, 2 vs 0 occasions of inflammation were associated with increased odds of developing depressive symptoms among women (odds ratio (OR)=2.75, 95% CI=1.53, 4.95), but not among men (OR=0.70, 95% CI=0.29, 1.68); P-for-sex interaction=0.035. In this cohort study of older adults, repeated but not transient exposure to systemic inflammation was associated with increased risk of future depressive symptoms among women; this subgroup finding requires confirmation of validity.

Last weekend, Meatball the dog had a party, with a cake all for his own and a lot of friends. Meaty's family called it his first birthday party, even though actually he's about 10.

"Because it was his first year in a loving home and we don't want to count all the crappy years that had passed by previously for him," Kimberly Koster tells The Dodo.

Late one rainy night almost exactly a year ago, Meatball was found chained to a fence. He was in a horrific state his head was swollen, he had deep cuts behind his ears and on his chest, and he had puncture wounds all over his face.

"He was in bad shape and he needed us," Koster says.

Dietary magnesium intake was significantly associated with a reduced risk of depression. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Aust N Z J Psychiatry. 2017 Mar ;51(3):219-229. Epub 2016 Nov 2. PMID: 27807012 Abstract Title:  Dietary magnesium and calcium intake and risk of depression in the general population: A meta-analysis. Abstract:  OBJECTIVE: Several epidemiological studies have evaluated the associations between dietary magnesium (Mg) and calcium (Ca) intake and the risk of depression. However, the results of these studies remain controversial. Thus, we performed a meta-analysis to explore these associations and to investigate the possible dose-response relationship between dietary Mg intake and risk of depression.METHODS: MEDLINE, Web of Science, Embase, Cochrane CENTRAL, CINAHL database, Chinese National Knowledge Infrastructure, Wan fang databases and Databases of Chinese Scientific and Technical Periodicals were searched for eligible publications up to September 2016. Pooled relative risks with 95% confidence intervals were calculated using random-effects model. Publication bias was estimated using Egger's test and the funnel plot. Dose-response relationship was assessed by restricted cubic spline functions.RESULTS: A total of 17 epidemiological studies from 12 articles were included in the present meta-analysis. Among these studies, 11 studies evaluated the association between dietary Mg intake and risk of depression and 6 studies evaluated the association between dietary Ca intake and risk of depression. When comparing the highest with the lowest intake, the pooled relative risks of depression were 0.81 (95% confidence interval=[0.70, 0.92]) for Mg and 0.66 (95% confidence interval=[0.42, 1.02]) for Ca. Dietary Mg intake was significantly associated with a reduced risk of depression among studies conducted in Asia (relative risk =0.57; 95% confidence interval=[0.44, 0.74]) and in studies adjustingfor energy intake (relative risk =0.73; 95% confidence interval=[0.58, 0.92]). For dose-response analysis, evidence of a nonlinear relationship was found between dietary Mg intake and risk of depression, and the largest risk reductions were observed for 320mg/day.CONCLUSION: This meta-analysis indicated that moderate Mg intake may be inversely associated with the risk of depression, which still needs to be confirmed by larger prospective cohort studies.

Photographer Spends 10 Years Giving a Voice and Face to Subcultures Around the World "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

David Tesinsky Documentary Photography

American in Prague after Trump won the US presidential election.

Czech photographer David Tesinsky has spent the past 10 years documenting subcultures and urban life around the globe. His fascinating work is sometimes painful to view, but important to share. His documentary photography reminds us that people living on the fringes of society still contribute, for better or worse, to our cultural makeup.

From Rastafarians in Jamaica to Satanists in his own country, Tesinsky's work paints a bold picture of the diverse belief systems and triumphs and struggles within these subcultures. For instance, with his new series Before Night Falls, he sheds light on the LGBT community in Cuba and what that means for the transgender community there. It's an emotional series that delves into how people can still live authentically in the face of social and political opposition.

What drew the young photographer toward this type of photography? I was always interested in subcultures and primarily how each one has a philosophy or just simply a way' which is a great space for me to find myselfor part of myselfin it and capture the real vibe of it, Tesinsky shares with us. But even more important is when it comes to activism I'm at home. As in the case with young open-minded people in Iran fighting for their freedom, but fighting the way that isn't public at all because they are scared. Pictures are the good option to let non-Iranians know that it's a problem. When there is an oppression against animals or people then I feel an anger and the camera is a great weapon to use with my visions to kill the ignorance.

In his own words, Tesinsky gives us a tour of some of the subcultures he's toured over the past 10 years, hoping that it will open the public's eyes and create discussions that bring positive change to the world.

Oral magnesium supplementation reduces the incidence of gastrointestinal complications following cardiac surgery. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Magnes Res. 2017 Feb 1 ;30(1):28-34. PMID: 28417897 Abstract Title:  Oral magnesium supplementation reduces the incidence of gastrointestinal complications following cardiac surgery: a randomized clinical trial. Abstract:  Gastrointestinal complications are common after coronary artery bypass graft surgery. These complications are ranged from nausea and vomiting to mesenteric ischemia and liver failure. It seems that nausea, vomiting, and constipation are related to magnesium deficiency. This study was designed to examine the effect of oral magnesium supplementation on the incidence of gastrointestinal complications in patients undergoing cardiac surgery. In a single blinded randomized clinical trial, 102 patients who were undergoing coronary artery bypass graft surgery were randomly allocated into two groups, 52 patients in the intervention and 50 patients in control group. Patients in the experimental group received 800 milligram magnesium oxide (2 tablets each of them containing 240 mg elemental magnesium) daily from the admission to discharge from hospital. The incidence of post-operative nausea and vomiting, constipation, and atrial fibrillation was compared between the groups. Our results showed that postoperative hypomagnesemia is present in 41.20 and 70.80 percent of thepatients in the intervention and control group patients, respectively. The overall incidence of constipation was 62%. Patients who received magnesium supplementation experienced less atrial fibrillation, nausea, vomiting, and constipation. Our data showed that oral magnesium supplementation could reduce the postoperative complications. Despite the better status in the intervention group, the hypomagnesemia was present in many of intervention group patients. It seems that supplementation with higher doses is needed.

Magnesium improves cisplatin-mediated tumor killing while protecting against cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Am J Physiol Renal Physiol. 2017 Aug 1 ;313(2):F339-F350. Epub 2017 Apr 19. PMID: 28424213 Abstract Title:  Magnesium improves cisplatin-mediated tumor killing while protecting against cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity. Abstract:  Approximately 30% of all cancer patients treated with cisplatin, a widely used broad-spectrum chemotherapeutic agent, experience acute kidney injury (AKI). Almost all patients receiving cisplatin have magnesium (Mg) losses, which are proposed to aggravate AKI. Currently, there are no methods to successfully treat or prevent cisplatin-AKI. Whereas Mg supplementation has been shown to reduce AKI in experimental models and several small clinical trials, the effects of Mg status on tumor outcomes in immunocompetent tumor-bearing mice and humans have not been investigated. The purpose of this study was to further examine the effects of Mg deficiency (Mg supplementation) on cisplatin-mediated AKI and tumor killing in immunocompetent mice bearing CT26 colon tumors. Using a model where cisplatin alone (20 mg/kg cumulative dose) produced minimal kidney injury, Mg deficiency significantly worsened cisplatin-mediated AKI, as determined by biochemical markers (blood urea nitrogen and plasma creatinine) and histological renal changes, as well as markers of renal oxidative stress, inflammation, and apoptosis. By contrast, Mg supplementation blocked cisplatin-induced kidney injury. Using LLC-PK1 renal epithelial cells, we observed that Mg deficiency or inhibition of Mg uptake significantly enhanced cisplatin-induced cytotoxicity, whereas Mg supplementation protected against cytotoxicity. However, neither Mg deficiency nor inhibition of Mg uptake impaired cisplatin-mediated killing of CT26 tumor cells in vitro. Mg deficiency was associated with significantly larger CT26 tumors in BALB/c mice when compared with normal-fed control mice, and Mg deficiency significantly reduced cisplatin-mediated tumor killing in vivo. Finally, Mg supplementation did not compromise cisplatin's anti-tumor efficacy in vivo.

Should your pet get injured, having cat and dog first aid supplies on hand and some basic know-how can buy you important time on the way to the vet, explains Andrea Arnold, program director of Lifesaving Enterprises LLC, who leads both pet and human first aid and emergency care workshops in New York City.

We find that the most commonly asked questions have to do with, When should I go to the vet? and theres a big distinction between first aid and veterinary care, because were not teaching people how to be vet techs, were telling them how to recognize and minimize damage to their animal, Andrea Arnold tells The Dodo. A simple cut or a bite from another animal can be taken care of at home, but at the point where you notice an infection happening you really need to take advantage of veterinary care for medications that you cant buy over the counter.

Pet first aid classes cover a variety of worst-case scenarios, including what to do when a pet is choking, resuscitation and CPR techniques, how to staunch bleeding, soft tissue issues such as burns, proper tick removal a...

She did everything she could to find him and even rented a helicopter to search from the air. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Pure joy is what Anai Montero felt the moment she was reunited with her Boston terrier, Rex, after 12 days of agony. This incredible reunion is the result of a dog with a will to stay alive, and an owner who refused to stop searching for him.

Credit: Anai Montero

It all started in June, on what seemed like a perfect birthday for Montero. She, her boyfriend and Rex drove to Assateague Island in Maryland to spend the day on the beach. I got my birthday wish of spending it with my family, which of course, includes Rex, Montero told The Dodo.

The trio had an amazing day. Rex absolutely loved the water and being out on the sand with us. Little did we know that this perfect day would soon literally take a turn for the worse, Montero said.

This is the Best Photo Ever Shot of a Star Other Than Our Sun "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Astronomers using the ESO Very Large Telescope have created the most detailed photo ever of a star other than our own Sun. The subject of the photo is the supergiant Antares, visible to the unaided eye in the constellation Scorpius.

To the unaided eye the famous, bright star Antares shines with a strong red tint in the heart of the constellation of Scorpius (The Scorpion), the ESO writes. It is a huge and comparatively cool red supergiant star in the late stages of its life, on the way to becoming a supernova.

Antares has 12 times the mass of the Sun and a diameter 700 times larger. Heres an artist rendering of what the star might actually look like:

Image by ESO/M. Kornmesser.

The team of astronomers was led by Keiichi Ohnaka of Chiles Universidad Catlica del Norte. They used the Very Large Telescope Interferometer (VLTI), which can combine light gathered from four different telescopes to create the equivalent view of a telescope with a 200-meter mirror. This setup allows scientists to see details that are currently impossible to capture with a single telescope.

The teams findings have been published in the scientific journal Nature.

Chronic latent magnesium deficiency in obesity decreases positive effects of vitamin d on cardiometabolic risk indicators. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Curr Vasc Pharmacol. 2017 Aug 21. Epub 2017 Aug 21. PMID: 28828979 Abstract Title:  Chronic Latent Magnesium Deficiency in Obesity Decreases Positive Effects of Vitamin D on Cardiometabolic Risk Indicators. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Obesity and micronutrient deficiencies contribute to the risk of cardiometabolic diseases such are type 2 diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease (CVD).OBJECTIVE: We examined the frequency of concomitant deficit of magnesium (Mg) and vitamin D in obese patients and evaluated the connection of these combined deficiencies with indicators of cardiometabolic risk in non-diabetic subjects.METHOD: Non-diabetic middle aged adults (n = 80; mean age 36 4 years, 52% women) were recruited based on weight/adiposity parameters [i.e. body mass index (BMI) and body fat percentage (FAT%)]. Cardiometabolic risk indicators [insulin resistance (Homeostatic Model Assessment for insulin resistance (HOMA-IR)) and CVD risk (Framingham risk score for predicting 10-year CVD)], Mg status [i.e. total serum Mg concentration (TMg), chronic latent Mg deficiency (CLMD) - 0.75-0.85 mmol/L], vitamin D status [i.e. serum concentration of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D), vitamin D deficiency<50 nmol/l] were assessed.RESULTS: Among obese subjects 36% presented a combination of vitamin D deficiency and CLMD. In all studied patients, 25(OH)D and TMg levels both, individually and combined, showed a negative linear correlation with HOMA-IR and CVD risk. In subjects with CLMD (TMg0.85 mmol/L), a negative linear coefficient was found between 25(OH)D and, HOMA-IR and CVD risk, compared with subjects with normal TMg status (TMg 0.85 mmol/L).CONCLUSION: CLMD and vitamin D deficiency may commonly be present in obese non-diabetic subjects. Individually and combined, both deficiencies predispose non-diabetic patients to increased risk of cardiometabolic diseases. Maintaining normal Mg status may improve the beneficial effects of vitamin D on cardiometabolic risk indicators.

Derek Beam was on his way home from work in bumper-to-bumper rush hour on the massive Washington D.C., beltway when he spotted something pink running against the flow of traffic.

"Suddenly I see this tiny, TINY little piglet running down the lane divider," Beam told The Dodo. "I get out of my car and try to close in on the out-of-place animal without scaring it into the next lane."

Another guy noticed what was happening and got out of his car too. With his help, Beam suddenly had a squealing pig in his arms.

"I calmed her down, placed her in the back seat, and took off," Beam said. "Like a dog she jumped into the front seat right away and tried to climb into my lap."

Beam managed to convince the piglet to settle for the passenger seat beside him, where she promptly fell asleep.

Serum folate was inversely associated with insulin resistance in U.S. nondiabetic adults. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Sci Rep. 2017 Aug 23 ;7(1):9187. Epub 2017 Aug 23. PMID: 28835661 Abstract Title:  Association between Serum Folate and Insulin Resistance among U.S. Nondiabetic Adults. Abstract:  Recent studies have suggested that epigenetic alterations, particularly DNA methylation, play a crucial role in the pathogenesis of insulin resistance. Folate is a key source of the one-carbon group for DNA methylation, whereas the association and mechanistic linkage between folate status and insulin resistance remains unclear with very limited experimental support. We performed a cross-sectional study of 1530 nondiabetic adults in the 2011-2012 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES). We examined associations between serum folate and insulin resistance using multiple linear regression models adjusted for potential confounders. We detected a significant inverse relationship for serum folate, where a 25% increase in serum folate was associated with a 3.06% (95% CI, -4.72, -1.37) and 2.77% (95% CI, -4.36, -1.77) decline in HOMA-IR and insulin respectively, and a 2.55% (95% CI, 0.93, 4.21) increase in G/I ratio. Our findings demonstrate that serum folate was inversely associated with insulin resistance in U.S. nondiabetic adults.

Camera on Balloon Captures the Total Solar Eclipse from Near Space "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Self-proclaimed armchair aeroscience geek Liem Bahneman managed to capture the Great American Eclipse from an unusual and amazing perspective: he loaded cameras onto a high-altitude and shot what the total solar eclipse looks like from the edge of space. The 9-minute video above is what one camera recorded over Central Oregon.

Bahneman used a total of four cameras on his near space stratospheric balloon: three still cameras (including a Ricoh Theta 360) and a GoPro shooting video.

He launched the balloon shortly before totality pass over the state. As youll see in the video, the cameras were able to capture the shadow of the moon creeping across the land and plunging everything into darkness for minutes during totality. At around 5 and 7 minutes, you can hear the sounds of jets flying over the mountains below.

This is the edited video, showing launch, the shadow of totality passing, and the last 40 seconds or is the last of the footage before the battery died, Bahneman writes.

Artist Creates Remarkable Glass Sculptures Using The Fibonacci Sequence [Video] "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Look to some of the most famous works in history, and you will find that they all have something in common: the Fibonacci sequence, otherwise known as the golden ratio.

This ratio is found in everything in nature, from atoms to unimaginable celestial bodies.

Over time, humans have realized this, which is why so many works including the Mona Lisa and famous architectural structures incorporate the ratio. The Fibonacci sequence maintains balance and is pleasing to the eye, which is why another artist named Jack Storms also uses it when creating astonishing glass art sculptures.

Credit: Materialist

Storms, who is based in Los Angeles, California, combines lead crystal and dichroic glass using a cold-glass process to create his art. As EducateInspireChange shares, the number of artisans who do this can be counted on one hand: 

What I do is I dont use any heat at all, I grind and grind and grind and then I polish, thats what separates me from everybody else. Its much more difficult and it takes a lot more time. But for me the effects are just brilliant, said Storms.

His name is Flame and he makes even the toughest days better. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The firefighters at Belmont Fire Department in Greenville, South Carolina, never intended to adopt a cat. In fact, most of them didnt even think of themselves as cat people. But two years ago, everything changed when engineer Jordan Lide noticed a small, scrawny cat in the grass outside of the station.

We were out in the bays one evening, decompressing after the end of a shift, and when we started to head in, I saw a small cat in the grass, Lide told The Dodo. So I started slowly making my way towards him, and he didnt run. He was extremely malnourished and skinny as can be.

Lide reached out a hand to pet the cat, and the cat melted. And as soon as I pet him, it was all over, Lide said. He was just climbing all over me.

Noticing how skinny the cat was, Lide went inside the fire department building, found some leftover chicken and brought it out to the cat.

He just ate it like it was the best thing ever, Lide said.

Her owners had just abandoned her at the "shipping pen." "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

A scared and skinny horse wouldn't be alive if it weren't for 14 kind people who pitched in to save her life. 

"Extremely critical fundraiser ... Take a look at this poor sweet girl!" Blessed Warrior Equine Rescue (BWER), in Gainesville, Texas, wrote last week on its Facebook page.

The organization's aim is to save horses from "shipping pens," the last place they go before they're shipped to slaughter in Mexico. And this horse, who has a sweet little diamond shape on her nose, was next to go. "She really needs our help to get her safe," BWER wrote. "She has faithfully served her owners and they abandoned her in a place like this, in such poor condition."

About 100,000 American horses or more per year are sent to Mexico and Canada to be slaughtered.

What Really Is 5G About? "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

By Catherine J. Frompovich

After my article Is This What You Want Outside Your Bedroom Window appeared, one of the EMF researchers, whom I network with, emailed comments, which I have permission to share with readers. The researcher wants to remain anonymous, which I respect, but was a former military radar specialist and also worked as a radiology specialist in hospitals, so he knows more about EMFs/RFs than most of us. Here are his comments to consider.


5G is serious stuff. We are living in very serious times. And no one seems to know, or wants to know, just how serious a price we have to pay for all our wireless tech addictions. I know from personal experience that 99.9% of Americans do not even know what G stands for, nor do they know anything about the scientifically- proven lethal radiation emitted from their childrens phones and Wi-Fi. [G stands for generation of power.]

The Elana Freeland video https://youtu.be/4efE1KBF80M?t=4 in your article is a must-see! YouTube is literally now exploding with warnings on 5G and pulsed microwave wireless harms, which the Mainstream Media have on total lockdown. This is 11:59:59 of the 11th Hour.

The very fact our Government is forcefully rolling this weaponized military grade program out with zero concern for safety, regardless of the ever-increasing decades-old Mt. Everest-size peer reviewed Science, should finally, once and for all, reveal to Americans what a lie they have been living for virtually all of their lives!

Researchers Crack Mathematical Code of 3,700-Year-Old Babylonian Tablet "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Plimpton 322 ancient Babylonia mathematics

The code has been cracked on a 3,700-year-old clay tablet dug up in southern Iraq almost a century ago. It was Edgar J. Banks, the inspiration behind Indiana Jones, who discovered the ancient Babylonian tablet later named Plimpton 322. He eventually sold it to publisher and collector George Plimpton for $10, and it was later bequeathed by Plimpton to Columbia University in the 1930s. It's only now that its full meaning, and importance to mathematics, is coming to light.

Thanks to the work of Dr. Mansfield and Associate Professor Norman Wildberger, both from the University of New South Wales, we have discovered that it was actually the ancient Babylonians who discovered trigonometry, not the Greeks as is commonly thought. The researchers argue that the 4 columns and 15 rows of cuneiform numbers are actually part of a highly accurate trigonometric table, not a teacher's aid to checking student solutions to math problemsthe previously accepted explanation.

Our research reveals that Plimpton 322 describes the shapes of right-angle triangles using a novel kind of trigonometry based on ratios, not angles and circles. It is a fascinating mathematical work that demonstrates undoubted genius, the researchers reveal in a UNSW statement.

Trigonometry, which involves the study of relationships between the lengths and angles of triangles, was thought to have been invented in ancient Greece. Greek astronomer Hippar...

They had to rappel down a cliff one by one to save his life "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Two researchers were observing a group of seals on a beach when they spotted one lying away from the rest of the group with a piece of netting stuck around his neck. Even from afar, the women could tell that the net had caused a bad injury, and they determined that the seal likely wouldnt survive without a little help. 

Knowing they wouldnt be able to rescue the seal on their own, the two women members of the Cornwall Seal Group Research Trust  contacted the British Divers Marine Life Rescue and the Cornish Seal Sanctuary, both of which sent people to help. It took a few hours to assemble the team and come up with a plan to help the seal without spooking him or any of the other seals on the beach.

We had to approach very slowly and as quietly as possible so that none of the seals on the beach knew we were there until the last moment, otherwise they would startle and escape into the sea, including the victim, Dan Jarvis, welfare development and field support officer at the British Divers Marine Life Rescue, told The Dodo. 

In order to approach the seal without him noticing, the team rappelled down a nearby cliff one by one. They then crept around the back of the cove, trying to remain unseen until the last possible second. 

Once they were finally in position, they ran as fast as they could toward the seal

Indian Supreme Court Declares That Privacy is A Fundamental Right "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

India is taking a stand against Big Brothers snooping. Recently, the Supreme Court of India ruled that privacy is a fundamental right protected by the Constitution.

As The Economic Times reports, the decision is likely to impact everything from the governments controversial Aadhaar program to civil liberties, to gay rights and the collection of personal data.

The ruling comes at a time when Aadhaar (Targeted Delivery of Financial and Other Subsidies, Benefits, and Services) Act of 2016 is being heavily criticized.

Reportedly, petitioners have spoken out against the act in light of how government agencies may misuse citizens personal information. For six days, petitioners pursued seemingly never-ending arguments in favor and against the right to privacy. Finally, a verdict was reached.

The bench, headed by Chief Justice JS Khehar, ruled that privacy is a fundamental right to life and personal liberty which should be guaranteed to all citizens under Article 21 of the Constitution. It was also determined that the right to marriage, procreation, privacy of home and the right to be left alone are other facets of privacy. Khehar wrote:

The right to be let alone is a part of the right to enjoy life. The right to enjoy life is, in its turn, a part of the fundamental right to life of the individual.

As a result of the ruling, the government cannot frame any policy or law that completely takes away the citizens right to privacy. The only thing the government can do is place reasonable restrictions on national sovereignty and security, public order, and decency, as outlined in Article 19 of the Constitution.

Little Girl Drew Her Dream Dress, So Her Loving Grandma Actually Made It For Her "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Today, many up-and-coming companies are finding imaginative ways to turn children's drawings into real-life creations. From custom-printed frocks to huggable stuffed animals, aspiring artists are now able to see their dream designs come to life. While these modern businesses are an excellent way to promote creativity, one lucky little girl has learned that no company can compare to a crafty grandma.

According to a post on Reddit, an unnamed girl had drawn a picture of her dream dress. Featuring the frills and ruffles characteristic of a classic Disney princess gown, the design looked like something reserved for a fairytale. However, upon seeing the pink-pen drawing, the little girl's cute grandma decided to make her fantasy a reality by creating a real-life replica of the garment.

When the little girl's father saw the dress, he was amazed by the woman's admirable effort and obvious talent. Came home from work yesterday and Grandma was over giving her the dress, he explains on Reddit. I was obviously impressed. Since sharing a side-by-side image of the design and the dress on Reddit, the post has gone viral, with users simultaneously praising the girl's artistic skills, the grandmother's handiwork, and, above all else, the beauty of their relationship.

Forget everything youve ever heard about geniuses "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

We are living in the middle of a self-esteem epidemic.

Most of us are down on ourselves.

Thinking we dont match up.

To make it worse everywhere we look we are surrounded by images of high-achievers people whove gone on to do great things and who have praise heaped upon them.

But I actually think weve got it upside down the way we venerate the people who do great things in society.

Its actually us the shit people who deserve a pat on the back. Were the ones muddling on through life with our shoddy DNA. Were the ones getting up in the morning when lets be honest for a lot of us theres not much of a point.

But we do it anyway. We brush our teeth. We change out of our pyjamas. We eat toast. Were the ones who deserve some praise.

And what of the so-called geniuses who walk among us?

What are they actually doing?

I dont think any genius who has ever lived has ever done anything that special.

Einstein, Newton, Da Vinci, Shakespeare, Galileo they havent actually done anything to make a song and dance about.

Let me explain.

Lets take John Lennon.

John Lennon is regarded as a musical genius.

But I dont think John Lennon has actually done anything that good.

And heres my point:

cos if I had been born in exactly the same hospital as John Lennon

at exactly the same time as John Lennon

and if I had been named John Lennon

and if Id had the same family as John Lennon

and if all my thoughts, emotions and experiences were the same as John Lennons

and if for all intents and purposes I effectively was John Lennon

then I could have been John Lennon.

But Im not.

Im Lee Kern.

And Lee Kern isnt any kind of genius.

Lee Kern is a man who runs out of toilet roll and has to call for help

at a job interview.

Lee Kern is a man who once boiled a hotdog in a kettle and who ended up without a hotdog or a kettle.

My point is: its easy to be a genius when youre a genius. Try being a genius when youre shit. That would be an achievement.

Try doing something incredible when youre an absolute arse-bucket that would really be something to write home about.

Analysis for Fast and Reliable Quality Control for Toothpaste Production "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Introduction

Many ingredients are added to mouthwash and toothpaste to improve both health benefits and quality. Fluorine is one such ingredient that is added to these items to strengthen tooth enamel and thus prevent cavities. This chemical element is typically added in the amounts of 1000 to 1500 ppm.

Sodium fluoride (NaF), sodium monofluorophosphate (Na2PO3F), and stannous fluoride (SnF2) are some of the active ingredients used. Apart from fluoride, other ingredients can also be included to obtain abrasiveness (silica) or whitening effects (peroxide).

It is important to accurately control the fluorine content. While a minimum amount of 1000 ppm is required to provide the preferred benefit of strengthening tooth enamel, excess amounts of fluorine are associated with health risks, such as dental fluorosis.

Regardless of the toothpaste matrix and fluorine compound, the fluorine content in the toothpaste can now be accurately determined using Time Domain Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (TD-NMR). TD-NMR analysis is both fast and simple, making it the preferred method for product development, production and quality control.

Features and benefits

The following are the key features and benefits of the TD-NMR analysis:

  • Most cost-effective at-line fluorine content determination
  • Broadly applicable for many different toothpaste formulations
  • Automation option
  • Measurement time takes less than 10 minutes

Application method

The TD-NMR analysis is built on the linear and quantitative signal response from the fluorine nuclei present in the sample. Hence, the NMR signal S (Hahn-Echo) amplitude is in direct proportion to the soluble fluorine mass.

Note: Only soluble fluorine is detected due to the very fast signal decay of immobilized or insoluble fluorine, for example in calcium fluoride (CaF2) or magnesium fluoride (MgF2). The soluble fluorine contributes to the desired health benefit.

Calibration procedure

  • Linear correlation with r > 0.995
  • Calibration range: 250 to 4000 ppm fluorine content
  • Coefficient of variance (CV) is less than 3% for repeated measurements of a 1000 ppm sample

It must be remembered that only soluble fluorine can be detected owing to the rapid signal decay of insoluble or immobilized fluorine, for instance in magnesium fluoride (MgF......

LED Street Lights Could Be Harmful to Your Health "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

LED street lights are so hazardous to peoples health that the American Medical Association (AMA) has adopted an official policy about them.

Adopted unanimously at the AMAs annual meeting in Chicago on June 14, 2016, the policy comes in response to the growing number of LED street lights in the country. An association committee issued guidelines on how communities can choose LED streetlights to minimize potential harmful human health and environmental effects.

Long-lasting LED lights are quickly replacing existing streetlights because they save municipalities money on energy and maintenance. But the AMAs stance reflects the importance of properly designing new technologies and the tight link between light and human health.

In the statement, the AMA recommends that outdoor lighting at night, especially street lights, should have a color temperature (CT) no greater than 3,000 Kelvin (K). A lights CT is a measure of the spectral content of light from a source how much blue, green, yellow, and red there is in it. A higher CT rating usually means a light contains more blue content, which makes the light appear whiter. [1]

Bright LED street lights have been shown to make people feel safer. They also make it easier for police to distinguish the colors of the cars they are chasing. [2]

This Lights Comes with Risk

But blue light has a dark side. Research suggests that blue light can prevent people from sleeping, or make them sleep poorly, because it throws off the bodys circadian rhythm. This is one of the problems the AMA sites in its statement.

In addition to street lights, blue light also emanates from cell phones, computers, tablets, and other electronic devices. This is why so many doctors and health experts recommend never using these gadgets at bedtime.

According to researchers at Harvard, blue light is useful during the day because it boosts attention, reaction times, and mood. But blue light also suppresses the secretion of melatonin, a hormone secreted by the brain that makes people feel sleepy at night.

Melatonin boosts the immune system, and is known to have anti-aging properties, as well.

Green light also suppresses the secretion of melatonin, but blue light suppresses it for about twice as long and was shown in studies to shi...

Does Aging Have an End Point? People Younger than Ever "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Usually when we hear about life expectancy rising and death rates falling, the good news is accompanied by handwringing about living in a greying world and a supposedly increasing proportion of people who must depend on others for health reasons. But times are changing, as life at certain age groups is not what it was even one generation ago.

Who would have thought that this could be a 51 year old womans life: teaching yoga at a hip hotel and club; sharing clothes and yoga challenges with her 19 year old daughter; and is in love with travelling? Such is the life of Polly Kemp, and its becoming increasingly common.

Polly says that when she hears the term middle-aged, I have to stop and think, Is this meant to be me? I dont polish silver or plan menus, and Im not interested in housework. I am also spontaneous and I dont think thats a quality traditionally associated with middle age.'

Even the author of the article adds that 40 years ago, she would have pictured her 53 year old self as having much shorter, greyer hair, and wearing frocks and face powder instead of jeans and CC cream.

It Isnt Just These 2 Women, Either

In a survey of over 500 women performed by the UK Telegraph:

  • 96% of women over 40 do not consider themselves to be middle-aged
  • 90% said they had a younger attitude than their mothers at the same age
  • 84% used products and services aimed at younger women
  • Almost 66% said they felt as vibrant and young as they ever had.

Unfortunately, the media hasnt caught up to these changes, choosing to hold onto the old ways. Women over 40, 50, 60, and sometimes even older are no longer confining their lives to, as the Telegraph describes, lawnmowers and Rotary Clubs, cheese and wine parties, elastic waists, river cruises and walking tours of Madeira.

I myself could not imagine my friends of those ages living in such a restricted way!

What Baby Teeth may Tell Researchers About Autism "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Researchers are constantly studying and learning more about autism spectrum disorder (ASD), but they have yet to be able to pinpoint specific causes. The origins of the disorder seem to be based in genetics and environmental factors. Now a study funded by the National Institute of Environmental Health and Sciences (NIEHS) seems to suggest that exposure to heavy metals could be one of the environmental triggers of autism. [1]

The researchers behind the study found that the baby teeth of children with autism contain more lead and fewer vital nutrients, including manganese and zinc, compared to the teeth of children without the developmental condition.

Cindy Lawler, Ph.D., head of the NIEHS Genes, Environment, and Health Branch, said:

We think autism begins very early, most likely in the womb, and research suggests that our environment can increase a childs risk. But by the time children are diagnosed at age 3 or 4, its hard to go back and know what the moms were exposed to. With baby teeth, we can actually do that. [1]

The study is the work of researchers from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital. It involved 32 sets of twins recruited from a national database of twins in Sweden, and was intended to see whether levels of lead and other metals correlated with an increased risk of autism. [2]

Of the 32 sets, 6 had only 1 twin with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), 7 had both twins with ASD, and 19 were unaffected by ASD.

Lasers were used to extract precise layers of the hard substance beneath tooth enamel, called dentine, to be analyzed for metals. Umbilical cord blood was used to check prenatal levels of metals.

Coenzyme Q10 may Be Viable Solution for Many Diabetics "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Coenzyme Q10 has long been known for its antiaging properties, especially in the cases of energy production and cardiovascular health. Now, it seems as though we have another use for this not-quite-a-vitamin the prevention and mitigation of diabetes.

One little-publicized cause of diabetes may be the use of statins, marketed as prevention for cardiovascular events. Some statins, such as rosuvastatin, are linked with a 27% higher risk of type II diabetes! Two meta-analyses also found an elevated risk of diabetes, one with a 9% higher risk, and the other showing a 12% higher risk. This disproportionately affects the elderly, who are most likely to be prescribed statins.

So Why May Statins Raise the Risk of Diabetes?

Statins work by blocking an enzyme called HMG-CoA reductase, but this also blocks a precursor to coenzyme-Q10. Depletion of CoQ10 disrupts mitochondrial function. Along with negatively affecting energy levels, this also has a negative impact on insulin signalling, which could lead to the blood glucose dysregulation known as diabetes. To make things even worse, lowering LDL cholesterol also reduces CoQ10 transport into cells. [1]

These effects combined can deplete CoQ10 by as much as 54%.

This is why medical professionals now often recommend CoQ10 supplements to anyone taking statins. In fat cells exposed to statin drugs, the coenzyme can restore the normal glucose uptake mechanism that the drugs also disrupt.

Additionally, CoQ10 has been found to reduce blood sugar and HbA1C levels in diabetic patients. Blood sugar tests only take a picture of how your glucose regulation is doing now; haemoglobin A1C gives an idea of your blood glucose regulation over the past 4 months, as it shows how much sugar has been tangled in the haemoglobin proteins.

The root cause of many diabetes complications is loss of endothelial function (the lining of the blood vessels), which leads to poor blood flow and tissue destruction in parts of the body such as the eyes, kidneys, and toes. Worse still, this can even affect the heart, causing something known as diabetic cardiomyopathy (heart muscle damage).

Fortunately, supplementation with 200mg of CoQ10 has been found to significantly improve loss of endothelial function in diabetes, which may spare many from crippling complications.

90 is the New 70: Old Age Just Isnt Old Age Anymore "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

This year, the oldest of the Baby Boomers are turning 70. But these late-decades of life arent what it used to be. With celebrities such as Cher (who turned 71 this year) no longer holding a monopoly over looking and acting younger. The UKs Oxford Institute of Population Aging even recommends that people in their 70s and 80s be called active adults instead of old.

Even the Daily Mail has added to the discussion, with a few writers who are, well, rewriting what it means to be over 70.

First up is Angela Neustatter, who at 73 looks years younger than youd expect. She attributes her youthfulness to yoga, Pilates, a house full of stairs, sex, and stepping back from emotional conflict. Angela does and wears what she wants, even mini skirts and leggings!

Tobacco Doesnt Just Kill Smokers; It Kills the Environment "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

About 90% of all lung cancers are caused by cigarette smoking. Smoking kills 7 million people a year, speeds aging, destroys the heart and cardiovascular system, and leads to asthma and COPD. But cigarettes dont just wreak havoc on the human body; they also wreak havoc on the environment through deforestation, pollution, and littering. [1] [2]

In May, the World Health Organization (WHO) released a study detailing the environmental costs of tobacco, adding to the mind-blowing $1.4 trillion in healthcare costs and lost productivity. The report looks at the immediate environmental damage caused by tobacco consumption, as well as the post-consumption waste and health implications that continue to play out long after the tobacco has been smoked. [3]

WHO Director-General Dr. Margaret Chan said:

Tobacco threatens us all. Tobacco exacerbates poverty, reduces economic productivity, contributes to poor household food choices, and pollutes indoor air. [2]

Source: TobaccoFreeCo.org

A few of the main take-aways from the report:

  • There are more than 7,000 toxic chemicals in tobacco waste some of them cancer-causing and these substances also pollute the environment.
  • Tobacco smoke has created thousands of tons of human carcinogens, toxicants, and greenhouse gases.
  • Cigarette butts and other tobacco waste account for a huge amount of trash. According to a 2014 study, tobacco waste constitutes more than a third of the refuse collected during coastal cleanups. Additionally, nearly two-thirds of all cigarettes purchased every day wind up tossed in the streets, grass, and water. Too few people flick their butts into a trash receptacle. [3]

Tobacco-leaf curing requires burning enormous quantities of wood, which contributes to deforestation. Larger tobacco growers also use coal, which emits carbon dioxide, the main greenhouse gas implicated in global warning. [4]
